Interpretations of Africa Seminar

08 Nov 2011

Leading figures from the African visual art diaspora discuss their work, chaired by David A Bailey

In this evening of panel discussions chaired by David A Bailey, leading figures from the African visual art diaspora will be brought together to highlight their work to a London audience. Hosted at the Design Museum, and presented with Iniva, this event will explore how these artists perceive themselves within an international art context and the role they feel they fulfil working in and outside of their respective countries.

Participating artists:

Hentie van der Merwe
Barthélémy Toguo
Saidou Dicko
EL Loko
Ernest Duku
Godfried Donkor
Hasan and Husain Essop

There will also be opportunity to view the collaborative exhibition Interpretations of Africa with football kit designs originated by PUMA.Creative that brought this high calibre group of artists to work together. The exhibition explores the response of the ten artists to the demanding brief of designing a new football kit that celebrates Africa’s unique visual identity and culture.
