Frank Davis Lectures 2019 – The Arts of Pre-colonial Africa

The Arts of Pre-colonial Africa

The 2019 Frank Davis Memorial Series invites four distinguished speakers to share new research in African art before the continent-wide colonialisation of the nineteenth century. Looking at the African material on its own terms rather than in light of Europe while also allowing us to understand the intercontinental and wider networks: the ways in which its various kingdoms centred themselves and connected with cultural worlds beyond. These lectures vary in scope and in their methodological approaches and provide an opportunity for reevaluations of the history of African arts.

The Frank Davis Memorial Lecture Series was established in 1989 by the F M Kirby Foundation, in honour of Frank Davis, a critic for Country Life Magazine.
