This catalogue documents the exhibition in Central Gallery, November 14, 2008 to January 18, 2009, that investigated the existence of transnational spaces in African digital art and the ways in which these works promote African identities that allow for wider, transnational expressions of Africanness and take African visions of “self” to the world.
Transnational Convergences in African Digital Art is the fourth exhibition Dunlop Art Gallery was pleased to host that is curated by Dr. Sheila Petty, Dean, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Regina.
Digital artists IngridMwangiRobertHutter, a collective from Kenya and Germany, have created Cryptic, a Traveler’s Diary (2007), that questions how journey and intersecting histories affect identity. South African Berni Searle’s double projection video installation, Home and Away (2003), references trade routes between Africa and Europe as well as personal histories and ancestry.
