Hi group -
This morning Robyn Poynor
sent me an announcement on the upcoming Triennial Symposium on African Art and I thought I would pass the information along to the group.
I had REALLY wanted to go to this symposium this year but unfortunately I didn't plan good and will be gone that weekend, now I will have to wait another 3 years to attend.
Triennial Symposium on African Art
Mark your calendars: March 28-April 1, 2007
University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida
"Sponsored by the Arts Council of the African Studies Association (ACASA), the Triennial Symposium on African art is the premier gathering of scholars,
museum curators, and interested members of the public devoted to the presentation of cutting edge research on the art of Africa and the African Diaspora. Through panels, keynote addresses, roundtables, book exhibits, and film screening, all aspects of African art from ancient bronze casting, through village masquerades, to contemporary art in a globalized world are presented and discussed."
If you are interested in finding out about the agenda, travel information etc, the website has a lot of information on the website.
