Join Assistant Professor Elizabeth Perrill (art history) in an informative discussion on the political climate and atrocities that occurred in South Africa during the anti-apartheid movement. Her presentation at the Greensboro International Civil Rights Center & Museum focuses on South African artists’ responses to the apartheid regime and its aftermath.
Specifically, Perrill will discuss the history of documentary photography in South Africa, the importance of print culture as a means of producing and disseminating politically charged art imagery, and a few modernist and post-modern expressions of anti-apartheid sentiment. She will also feature Adrian Piper’s Vanilla Nightmares #7, as seen in Weatherspoon Art Museum: 70 Years of Collecting.
Perrill’s 30 minute talk is one of several events surrounding the exhibition Helen Suzman: Fighter for Human Rights, on view in the Changing Gallery.
