What does it mean to exhibit the art of Africa in a museum? In this Dorothy Sturm Lecture, Christa Clarke, Senior Curator, Arts of Global Africa at Newark Museum, considers some of the complex issues surrounding the evolving representation of African art in museums. Join us to hear how Clark looks at how new approaches to display and interpretation can offer a more expansive and nuanced perspective on the art of the continent and its global diaspora.
