Event description

Description

Against a backdrop of retreating notions of multiculturalism and an increasing populist nationalism in Europe and America, is portraiture emerging as a resonant medium by which to assert black visibility? Does portraiture take on a dual role, both as the artistic practice of individuals and a form of collective endeavour? Led by DAVID A. BAILEY MBE (Artist and Curator), artists, KIMATHI DONKOR, IRVIN PASCAL and KUDZANAI-VIOLET HWAMI, discuss how they are articulating their presence in portraiture at a time of rising reactionism.

This event is a part of FORUM, 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair's Programme of talks, performances and screenings. Entry to the talks is free for all the ticket holders of 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair. Further information on how to purchase tickets for the fair here.
