“Meanwhile, in Africa…”

Christine Eyene

First of all I would like to thank the audience for attending this long session. I would also like to thank the Centre Pompidou for this invitation which is for me a rare occasion to speak in front of a French audience; and particularly Jean-Hubert Martin whom I first met when I was a student in Paris in 1998-99 and with whom I have had some interesting exchanges on Modern South African art while gaining work experience at the Musée des Arts d’Afrique et d’Oceanie (MAAO), and later, after I began practicing as an art writer and curator.
