This major international symposium will consider and reflect on recent developments in the globalisation of the contemporary art of Africa and its many diasporas. A number of key international exhibitions have highlighted the increased importance of artistic production by African and African diasporic artists to the evolving geography of global contemporary art. This symposium gathers artists, curators, art historians and cultural critics to discuss and unravel the complexities of presenting and exploring art of the African diaspora and situating it within debates around Contemporanism.
