3 Feb 2023 7-9pm

Overview

Join artist Sokari Douglas Camp CBE, in conversation with Africa Fashion lead curator Dr Christine Checinska, at V&A South Kensington.

The large-scale steel sculpture is currently on display in the Dorothy and Michael Hintze Galleries and complements the Africa Fashion exhibition.

This conversation will also offer direct insights into Sokari Douglas Camp's process of ‘welding, cutting and bending steel’.
