Paul Mellon Centre | Black British Artists and Political Activism: Artists Against Apartheid

November 25, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

This is session four of the Black British Artists and Political Activism series. In this session, Gavin Jantjes in conversation Allison K. Young will unpack the impact of the anti-Apartheid movement on Jantjes’ early work ​and the subsequent shift in his practice from the overtly political in works such as A South African Colouring Book (1974–5) towards non-figurative abstraction.
The series will run every Thursday from 4 November to 9 December from 18.30 to 20.00. This series will be broadcast live as a Zoom webinar. It will be recorded and published at a later date. Registration through Eventbrite is required.
No prior art historical knowledge is necessary.
