The medias depiction of Africa surprisingly has changed little over the past century. But Africa is so much more than the wretched images of hungry, bare-breasted women and mysteriously menacing tribesmen. The curators at the Lowe Art Museum are presenting the exhibits "Imaging and Identity: African Art from the Lowe Art Museum and Other South Florida Collections" and "Engaging the Camera: African Women, Portraits and the Photographs of Hector Acebes," a stunning display of the Colombian photographers iconic shots. Tonight's lecture will add rich context to these bold exhibitions. At 7:30 ethnomusicologist Daniel Reed will present "Masks and Music, Spirits and Sports: Dan Gunyege in Performance." Expect to experience the lush culture of the motherland in all its visual and auditory glory.
Wed., Jan. 11, 7:30 p.m.
