Brooklyn Museum, New York, United States 19 Mar 2014 - 22 Mar 2014
The 16th Triennial Symposium on African Art will be held at the Brooklyn Museum. The conference is being organized by Kevin Dumouchelle, Triennial Chair, and the conference program has been developed by Gary van Wyk, Program Chair.
The 16th Triennial at Brooklyn will consider the full range of topics related to the arts of Africa and the African Diaspora currently being addressed by ACASA members—from considerations of the archaeological and archival contexts of historical African art to examinations of emerging artistic practices on and off the continent. Like the accomplished Lega elder who once used a three-headed sakimatwemtwe figure, ACASA members look to the future and the past, simultaneously.
