Join curators Felicia Mings and Constantine Petridis for a tour of Malangatana: Mozambique Modern, featuring the early work of one of the pioneers of modern African art.
The first solo exhibition of a modern African painter at the Art Institute, this presentation highlights the years between 1959 and 1975, a period in which Malangatana embarked on bold formal experiments and painted the rapidly changing world around him, inviting us to consider his development as an artist part and parcel with the emergence of modern African art.
Please note that the artwork on this page may not be featured during the gallery talk.
