Barthelemy Toguo 3/22, find out more about this visiting artist in the Library

The Library would like to bring your attention to some recent additions to the collection in which the work of next week’s visiting artist Barthelemy Toguo is discussed.  They are Contemporary African Art Since 1980 (cover illustration above), Angaza Afrika, African Art Now, and Drawing Now: Between the Lines of Contemporary Art. In them you can see examples Toguo's work in a variety of media including painting, drawing, photography and installation, and read critical discussion of his themes and motivations.  These books are all on display now in the main reading room of the Library.  We hope they will provide further insight into this artist's practice.  Enjoy the lecture!

  1. I will totally be looking into this and hopefully finding use for it in our 3D class and others. Biosystems even! Thank you for expanding this section. I feel contemporary African art has been SERIOUSLY overlooked.

    I love you library!
