Women Artists from Africa and its Diasporas

Tiwani Contemporary, London, United Kingdom
28 Mar 2013

Art Connect: Women Artists from Africa and its Diasporas is a launch and panel discussion around n. paradoxa international feminist art journal, volume 31, guest edited by Bisi Silva

In her editorial, Silva observes the exponential growth in the visibility of a new generation of women visual artists from Africa. She also highlights that many major artistic initiatives that have flourished on the continent, in the first decade of the new millennium, have all been started or headed by women curators and cultural producers. Yet, in spite of these positive developments, she writes that an in-depth study of individual practices of woman artists is still lacking in the field of African art historiography.

It is from this starting point, that the evening will focus on the breadth and complexity of themes and issues addressed by female practitioners, including the body, sexuality, history, culture, patriarchy and post-colonialism.

Invited panelists:  Sonia Boyce, artist; Angèle Etoundi Essamba, photographer; Nancy Mteki, photographer; Katy Deepwell, art historian and n. paradoxa founder and editor and Giulia Lamoni, art historian. The panel discussion will be moderated by Christine Eyene, art historian and curator. Copies of n. paradoxa 31 will be available during the event for purchase.

6:30 – 8:30pm, rsvp:
