Online Conference – Reshaping the Field: Arts of the African Diasporas on Display

04-06 nov 2021
Public talk
Online conference
Opening, 16th Annual Art Exhibition, 1957. Atlanta University Photographs Collection, Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library.

Afterall partner the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College is organising the online conference to explore how African Diaspora Art Histories have been shaped through exhibitions in recent history and how the question of Black identity in art and exhibition making is historically and systemically produced. It is inspired by Bridget Cooks’ critical study of exhibitions on African American artists titled Exhibiting Blackness: African Americans and the American Art Museum. The conference is a platform to gather oral accounts, primary materials and art historical research on African Diaspora Art in UK and US through the lens of exhibition histories. It is organised by Nana Adusei-Poku, Associate Professor and Luma Scholar at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College.
