Painting and Sculpture from Post-colonial Urban Africa
ARHA 296
Spring 2008
Section: 01  

This course focuses on painting and sculpture produced by African artists of the "post-colony." Urban Africa has produced new forms of artistic expression, from the paintings of Cheri Samba in Kinshasa to the use of military weapons in "peace" sculpture in Zimbabwe. These artists give voice to life in the huge amorphous post-urban agglomerations that are the African city today.
