From Bisi Silva's descriptions of a scene that she knows intimately: independent art centers and initiatives across the region of West Africa, and black diasporic arts beyond. This conversation has been developed as a project to research global modes of arts organization and curatorial practice. It also interrogates the niche of working in global context with projects that create intercultural space and shared meaning. We will discuss the role of arts organizations in society, and visual cultures. Students are welcome and encouraged to bring questions and perspectives to share at this conversational event.
