Bisi Silva, the Nigerian curator who has brought much needed life to the somnolent Lagos art scene will be at the Newark Museum this Friday. She will be speaking about her work at the Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos. She will also have a public conversation with my good friend and colleague, Christa Clarke who, for her part, has done a lot for (contemporary) African art there at the Newark Museum. It should be a worthwhile event, especially for anyone interested in the field of contemporary African art.
