What’s new with African art and research surrounding it today?

Find out in a three-part, roundtable series featuring ten scholars working in art history, anthropology, visual art, curation, sociology, and communication.

Dr. Cory Gundlach, curator of African arts will moderate three online events anchored by a central question: “With special attention to ritual and style in historical and/or contemporary art from Africa and the African diaspora, how must we comport ourselves to the [conditions] of our research and practice today?”

Each event will feature three twenty-minute presentations from panelists who will then join in a roundtable discussion.
