Okwui Enwezor, director of Haus der Kunst, welcomes artists Sonia Boyce and Ellen Gallagher, DIA curator Courtney J. Martin, artists and filmmakers Isaac Julien and Steve McQueen, and professors J. Michael Dash and David Scott to THE SEA IS HISTORY—ART AND BLACK ATLANTIC CULTURES.
This symposium—moderated by Mark Nash and Allison Thompson—examines “the intersection of the artistic, theoretical, literary, and cultural dimensions” in the work of Frank Bowling, the Guyanese-born, London-based artist whose work is “deeply connected to, and inflected by Édouard Glissant’s notion of a ‘Caribbean Discourse’—the idea that the entire critical literature and art created within the historical complex of the Black Atlantic is an ongoing process of philosophical reflection.”*
THE SEA IS HISTORY—ART AND BLACK ATLANTIC CULTURES, Friday, October 20, 11 am to 7 pm.
HAUS DER KUNST, Prinzregentenstrasse 1, Munich.
