Join us for this talk with art historians Delinda Collier and Leslie Wilson about the artists and ideas behind Collier's new book Media Primitivism: Technological Art in Africa (Duke University Press, 2020). 

 

A sweeping new study of technological media centering Africa, Media Primitivism examines film, digital art, and electronic music produced by African artists in relation to ideas of transfer and transmutation. A related program of films and videos is on view in the Gene Siskel Film Center’s virtual cinema from October 11–17.
