Next Chapter: Inquiries into emerging art practices
…With all the buzz about Africa and it’s artwork, the biggest question that arises is what does all this mean for the next generation of artists? Will all this attention turn into programs providing previously unattainable resources? Will this lead to a greater emphasis on art-based education? And will young emerging artists begin to receive the exposure their work deserves?
Join us over the next three months for Next Chapter, a series that focuses on a group of countries in three regions of the continent, southern Africa, northern Africa and western Africa.
The series will attempt to provide an invigorating survey of the current conditions, education and resources available to young emerging artists in these regions on the continent. Next Chapter will include interviews, in depth discussions with, and reflections from, practitioners on the continent and those in the diaspora, all with the intention of highlighting the work being done by emerging African artists and making sense of what the impact of this African resurgence means to this new generation of artists.
