    Global Exhibitions - Contemporary Art and the African Diaspora

    Friday 19 February 2010, 10.00–17.00
    Tate Liverpool

    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 Modernism.

    Key speakers include Shaheen Merali, curator of Black Atlantic: Travelling Cultures, Counter-Histories, Networked Identities, Berlin 2004; Sonia Boyce, artist in Black Skin/Bluecoat, The Bluecoat, Liverpool, 1985; and Carol Tulloch, Reader at TrAIN, Chelsea College of Art and Design, University of the Arts, London, and co-curator of Black British Style at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, 2004.
