The Wednesday after next is a busy day for African contemporary art in London. First, there’s the latest Africa Now auction at Bonhams. Later on, if you’re still feeling energetic, there’s a talk from renowned artist Sokari Douglas Camp, who will be speaking at the Brunei Gallery for the Centre of African Studies annual lecture. Her title? “What Picasso knew: Highlighting Contemporary African Art”. Knowing Sokari and her wry, critical take on things, ‘what Picasso knew’ may well turn out to be not quite what you’d expect…
The event will be chaired by Dr Chege Githiora (SOAS), with Dr Charlie Gore (SOAS) as discussant, and will be followed by a reception.
Wednesday 23 May, 6-9
