HCM CITY  (VNS) —  N'Gone Fall, an independent curator, art critic, and consultant in cultural engineering from Senegal will speak about the culture and contemporary art of Africa at two lectures at Hoa Sen University in HCM City later this month.

Her first talk, scheduled for August 27, will focus on Pan African Dreams, the "dream of an integrated continent – a site of negotiation for various, complex cultures", according to a press release.

Fall will present artists who have used Pan Africanism as a concept as well as some of the art projects that she and her colleagues have realised in Dakar to look at the countries and the continent through the prism of history, geography and politics.

In the second lecture on August 28, Fall will present a series of interesting examples by African artists that reflect the past, present and future of the continent through visual art.

"Their projects are not confined within the boundaries of modernism but live, move and breath with contemporaneity," the press release said.

Admission to the lectures is free. English-Vietnamese translations will be provided.

A graduate of the Ecole Speciale d'Architecture in Paris, Fall was the editorial director of the Paris-based contemporary African art magazine Revue Noire from 1994 to 2001. She has also been an editor of numerous books on contemporary visual arts and photography in Africa.— VNS
