  • The Local and The Global: Black Aesthetics and the Legitimization Process in Global Contemporary Art

    The emergence of new stars in the contemporary global art scene seems to validate a particular geography; a particular type of art and a particular race of artists. Their "global fame" carefully wrapped in layers of beautifully ornamented museums and galleries and in glossy art magazines and blockbuster exhibitions is awaited with great anticipation. Critics dedicate thousands of words to the announced work. Yet, sometimes, the density of the work and the words appears not to be backed by a complexity of thought. Building on recent theoretical works which redefine blackness away from abjection, post-ness and erasure, this panel explores the process of artistic legitimization and issues connected to this dynamic.  [Complimentary Wine Will Be Served.]   

    2:00 PM
  • Centering the Margins: Contemporary Situations and Differences in African Diaspora: Mutations, Migration, Multiculturalism
      
    There have been innovations in classifying and exhibiting  African  Diaspora  art.  Among  the  issues  that  grid these dynamics:  Who classifies it? How, by whom, is it legitimated? What and who defines what is ‘authentic' or ‘contemporary' in ‘African Diaspora Art'?

    This panel explores notions of distinction between center and periphery in contemporary art circles, modernity / contemporaneity, change and tradition in African Diaspora Art. Is this distinction still prevalent? Has the recognition of innovation in African Diaspora Art amounted to dissociating it from the exotic, even when included in global art circuits under the rubric of contemporary African Diaspora art? The panel explores points of entries and departures to question and discuss criteria of classification and canonization.  [Complimentary Wine Will Be Served.]
