Raw Social 8/9: We Face Forward Symposium

August 10, 2012

We’re holding our grand finale for the exhibition with a symposium at the Manchester Art Gallery, and our theme is: 
Making Exhibitions and Art Practice in West Africa Today.

Join with Christine Eyene (Curator of Dak’art 2012, and advisor to We Face Forward) and Professor Claire Griffiths of Chester University (author of Globalizing the Postcolony: contesting discourses of gender and development in francophone Africa) for a discussion around the context of exhibition making and art practice in West Africa, looking at the political and social content of artists’ work and the long-running African Biennial of contemporary art, Dak’art.

Everyone is welcome, and remember that it won’t be held at the Whitworth this time!
