Abstract

What does it mean to make art in Africa? In Making Art in Africa, 60 of the continent's leading artists give very different answers to this question through a series of extraordinary first-hand commentaries relating to specific works. The book includes accounts from key curators and co-ordinators, and primary images are considered in the context of contemporary events, personal discoveries, and the networks such as Triangle which have brought them together. Showcasing paintings, sculptures, prints and installations, Making Art in Africa marries the selected interviews and their associated images with archival and comparative illustrations. The result is an unparalleled insight into the artworks, experiences and processes of art making in Africa during a period of radical social change. Visually appealing with absorbing, accessible texts, Making Art in Africa provides a unique contribution to the literature available on this fascinating subject, and will be an essential purchase for scholars and general readers alike.
