Upcoming lecture: African Art at the Newark Museum

art_flyerIn anticipation of the Fall 2014 opening of the first permanent gallery of African art at the Smith College Museum of Art (SCMA), the museum and the Smith College Department of Art have invited Christa Clarke, curator of the Arts of Global Africa at the Newark Museum, to discuss her innovative approaches to curating African art at the Newark Museum. The lecture, titled “Curating a Continent: African Art at the Newark Museum”, will take place Monday, April 7.

Co-editor of Representing Africa in American Art Museums: A Century of Collecting and Display, Clarke has transformed the permanent galleries of African art and organized acclaimed temporary exhibitions at the Newark Museum. She curated the first permanent gallery dedicated to contemporary African art in an American art museum. Her talk is in conjunction with a temporary exhibition curated by Mellon Five College Postdoctoral Fellow in African Art and Architecture Amanda Gilvin and her students. “Transformations in African Art” will be on view at the Smith College Museum of Art through May 25.

The lecture—which begins at 5 p.m. on April 7 in Graham Auditorium, Hillyer Hall—is free and open to all; no reservations are needed. A public reception will immediately follow the lecture.
