Contemporary African Art Practices in a Globalized World


Migration, identity, cultural connections: globalization raises questions about all these issues, and contemporary art is a powerful way of exploring them. In this talk complementing the Museum exhibitions Caravans of Gold, Fragments in Time and Building Black: Civilizations, artists and curators explore the impact on contemporary art of Africa’s diverse cultures and diaspora.

Visual artist Ekow Nimako, creator of Building Black: Civilizations, is joined by AGO curator Julie Crooks and artist/curator Chiedza Pasipanodya for a timely discussion that will celebrate Black History Month while also examining Toronto’s role as an international hub for creative art practices.
