Anya Fulu Ugo – An Interdisciplinary African Arts Conference of the Faculty of Arts, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, in honour of El Anatsui and Obiora Udechukwu

June 24, 2015 @ 8:00 am - June 27, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

Free

In line with an Igbo saying: Anya fulu ugo jaa ya mma, na-adi afu ugo kwa daa (the eye that sees an eagle should adore it, for only rarely are eagles seen), the Faculty of Arts, University of Nigeria, Nsukka announces its interdisciplinary African Arts Conference Series in honour of Nigerian and other African scholars who have made landmark contributions to the humanities. Under the banner “Anya Fulu Ugo”, the maiden edition will be in honour of Professors El Anatsui and Obiora Udechukwu.

The broad theme of the conference is “African Art and Artists after the Millennial Turn”. It proposes an interdisciplinary approach to the discourse of the current state of art and artists in Africa and the African Diaspora. There will be panel and paper proposals from scholars in the humanities and related fields that examine the life and work of important contemporary African artists at home or in the Diaspora, the work of curators of contemporary African art, the rising concern surrounding ownership of Africa’s cultural patrimony and the call for the restitution of Africa’s art objects looted by the West, among other compelling conversations.
