Public Lecture Series: What is “Contemporary” African Art?

WAM, in association with the Centre for the Creative Arts of Africa (CCAA), presents a series of public lectures. Drawing extensively on the WAM collection, this six part lecture series explores a wide range of “contemporary” African art practices.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn from specialists, engage with people who share your interests and expand your knowledge of the visual arts of Africa.

Professor Anitra Nettleton, Dr Paul Davis and Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum of the CCAA, Dr Laura De Becker of WAM, and Nontobeko Ntombela of the Wits School of Arts will present different parts of the programme.
