SAVAH TALKS 2014 Lecture 1. Modern or Contemporary: New Trends in Artistic Practices in Africa and its Diaspora by Prof Barbaro Martinez-Ruiz

As an organisation of art historians, art critics and professional art practitioners, the South African Visual Art Historians (SAVAH) provides a platform for research in the arts and seeks to forge relations with practitioners from other disciplines and regions. SAVAH recognises that new forms of scholarship in the arts necessitate continuous public engagement. To this end, SAVAH would like to hold lectures and panel discussions at public institutions around the country. This year one lecture and a panel discussion were held in collaboration with IZIKO South African National Gallery (SANG) and Michaelis School of Fine Art, UCT.
Public lectures are given by academics as well as art practitioners whose work reflects engagement with various socio-political contexts. We seek to align most lectures and panel discussions with current exhibitions at institutions such as the SANG so that this series of lectures serves a greater purpose for the SAVAH and the public.
