Painting and Sculpture from Postcolonial Urban Africa
ARHA 296
Fall 2009 not offered

This course focuses on painting and sculpture produced by African artists of the postcolony. 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 posturban agglomerations that are the African city today.
