Talk at Tate Britain: Grace Ndiritu, Questions from the past

Grace Ndiritu is doing a talk on 12 March at the Tate Britain:

Artist Grace Ndiritu works at the intersection of film and

performance. This talk uses performance video art using the

female body from her Still Life and Responsible Tourism series

to dialogue with paintings from the Orientalism movement and

Henri Matisse, examining how these works influenced Western

ideas of Africa and women in the late nineteenth century.
