Talk & Tour: Shifting Views: People & Politics in Contemporary African Art
Shannen Hill, associate curator for African arts, Baltimore Museum of Art

Shannen Hill will introduce us to the BMA’s contemporary African art holdings, focusing on the Museum’s first exhibition of contemporary art from Africa drawn from its own collection. This exhibition features photographs, prints, and drawings by David Goldblatt, Gavin Jantjes, William Kentridge, Julie Mehretu, Senam Okudzeto, Robin Rhode, and Diane Victor. Each artist offers pointedly political perspectives on the lives of Africans and their diasporic descendants. Members are encouraged to visit the exhibit (on the ground floor) before or after the talk.
