Here and Now: African and African American Art and Film Conference focuses on contemporary expressions in art and cinema from multiple perspectives within the realm of African and African American visual culture. This four-day conference looks at how African and African American artists interpreted, documented, chronicled, and created images over the last twenty years. By re-examining visual history through the voices of artists, art historians, filmmakers, photographers, activists, editors, writers, collectors and gallerists, “Here and Now” encourages a diverse perspective
of the imagery created in the 21st century. For more information and a schedule of events please visit
