Senegalese Art in U.S. Schools: Transporting Contemporary African Diaspora with Decolonized Perspectives
Bode, Patty
Educational Forum, v78 n1 p42-53 2014
This article investigates the ways in which global art making and cultural practices have been conveyed in U.S. schools and considers questions about how art education can engage in decolonization. This special issue's theme of Diversity, Globalization, and Education is approached through the window of visual art by examining the work of three contemporary Senegalese artists and one U.S. artist in the sociopolitical contexts of history and current events, and asserting ways in which curriculum in U.S. schools may be considered with a decolonizing lens by integrating the artists' perspectives.
