Prof. Gary Baxter: Is African art, art?

Richly illustrating his claims as he speaks, Prof. Baxter will show that African traditional art and its modern-day descendants in the global South are as well-crafted and as conceptually rich as their artistic counterparts from the global North. Several of the characteristics and influences that have defined and shaped art of the African continent will be explored in an effort to convey an appreciation for this unique vision of art's connection to life.
