Authenticity and African Aesthetics, an Experience UWF Event
Start Date: 10/18/2018Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 10/18/2018End Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description:
The Experience UWF Downtown Lecture Series presents: "Authenticity and African Aesthetics," Thursday, Oct. 18, The Art Gallery UWF at UWF's UWF CFPA. At its foundation lies a deeply misguided understanding for this most prevalent and economically-driven African art market, named simply by contemporary art historians as “tourist” art. The “Cultural Commodities and the Transformation of African Spiritual Objects” exhibition, on loan from the Pensacola Museum of Art, will serve as a backdrop for the conversation. Through the display of African market art, this exhibition will lead viewers to investigate problematic, traditionally Western viewpoints applied to nineteenth and twentieth century African art.
Reception, Exhibit and Panel Discussion: Thursday, Oct. 18, at The Art Gallery at UWF, Building 82 in the UWF Center for Fine and Performing Arts
Reception: 5:30 - 6 p.m.
Panel Presentation: 6 p.m.
