Archetypes, Aesthetics & Culture in the Art of African Diaspora
February 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST
This talk lays the foundation for understanding the universal nature of archetypes and their environmental expressions in personal and collective cultural complexes that are mediated by the environmental culture. We take the archetype of the Life Cycle, common to all living beings, and ground it in visual arts as expressions of the aesthetics, art, and culture of the African Diaspora. We’ll explore how the commonalities and differences in Pan African sculpture, as metaphor, bridge consciousness to multiculturalism and world view.
