April 28th Fowler Talks: The African Arts in Venice Form

RSVP to receive link to join.

The African Arts in Venice Forum (AAVF) is a free public platform presented in Venice, Italy during the opening week of the Biennale Internazionale dell’Arte di Venezia. The event provides opportunities to discover, learn, and discuss topics and projects related to contemporary art from Africa and its diasporas.

This year, AAVF will take place on April 20 and 21. Check out the schedule and watch live-streamed and recorded conversations here. Then, join us for a program with AAVF founder and director Neri Torcello, moderated by AAVF board member Azza Satti, who will talk with Vice President of African Art Dialogues Ilaria Conti; the creative director of SOMETHING WE AFRICANS GOT Anna-Alix Koffi; and Co-Founder and Director of Black History Month Florence and The Recovery Plan, Justin Randolph Thompson. The panelists will share the highlights of the 2022 forum, including conversations about the rise and impact of intra-African cultural cooperation; activities promoting Black history in Italy; African artists who have established foundations to support education and creativity; and the effect of restitution on contemporary African creation.

The African Art in Venice Forum is produced by African Art Dialogues, a not-for-profit organization registered in Italy whose members serve on a pro-bono basis. AAVF was born in 2017 with the aim of bringing together in Venice a multiplicity of voices in the contemporary African art ecosystem; and facilitating a broader cultural dialogue during the Biennale’s opening week. AAVF advocates for a wider spectrum of creative practices and conversations that address individual, societal, and global issues of our time.

Fowler Talks: The Fowler is honored to be a convening place for conversations, lectures, and readings that explore the many ways art creates meaning and defines purpose for people across the globe.
