The Clark/Mellon Workshop in Contemporary African Art examines the art historical scholarship, publications, exhibitions, and cultural institutions shaping the representation of contemporary African art. The first two-day workshop took place at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, in October 2007. The second two-day workshop takes place at the Clark May 23 and 24, 2008.
The workshops bring people together from Africa, Europe, and North America to discuss and debate important questions such as “What is contemporary African art ? How do scholars, artists, curators and institutions engage contemporary African art practices ?” On Saturday, May 24, we invite the public to join us for an exciting closing event. The public program will focus on lively conversation and debate between participants about artists, exhibitions, biennials, curatorial practices, and research in contemporary African art.
