AfriSam Art Tour
With the aim of providing economically viable access to a core collection of art to the public, the AfriSam Art Tour will explore the museum’s permanent shows and travelling exhibitions, both of which focus on contemporary art from Africa. The museum boasts six research centres that include the Roger Ballen Foundation Centre for Photography, the Costume Institute, the Centre for Art Education, the Centre for the Moving Image, the Centre for Performative Practice, and the Centre for Curatorial Excellence. For the research that comes out of these centres to reach maximum impact, the art audio tour will provide a free and accessible platform for visitors to truly immerse themselves in art from Africa and the Diaspora. Some of the stops in this tour will include insights into the works of prominent artists such as Nandipha Mntambo, Kudzanai Chiurai, and Edson Chagas. A combination of insights from artists and curators will also be featured in this tour.
