When We See Us: A Century of Black Figuration as Representation of Self
Tuesday, 31 May
6.30 pm SAST, 5.30 pm GMT
The series is free and will take place via Zoom. No registration is required.
With speakers Ashraf Jamal (South African author, academic and cultural analyst), Keyna Eleison (curator, researcher and Professor at Parque Lage School of Visual Arts in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and Huey Copeland (BFC Presidential Associate Professor in History of Art at the University of Pennsylvania, United States).
Continuing Zeitz MOCAA’s collaboration with the Institute for Humanities in Africa (HUMA), University of Cape Town (UCT), this third session of the When We See Us webinar series asks how and why Black figuration offers a space for the projection of new vocabularies and shared imaginaries in the representation of the self. No registration required.
The When We See Us webinar series precedes a major exhibition of the same name, opening on 19 November 2022. The exhibition, along with its accompanying programming, of which the webinar series is part, will attempt to unveil the deeper historic contexts and networks of a complex and underrepresented genealogy that stems from African and Black modernities and spans several generations from the early 20th century to the present.
