Between 1951 and 1981, the white-minority government of South Africa ran a school for art teachers at Ndaleni, Natal. In this talk—which draws on the research presented in his book, The Art of Life in South Africa—Daniel Magaziner, Associate Professor in the Department of History, Yale University, considers the history of art and education under a white supremacist government. Magaziner traces the trajectories of the idea of art, the politics of culture under apartheid, and especially the lives and experiences of the nearly 1000 African teachers who trained at the school. Presented in conjunction with the newly reinstalled Laura and James J. Ross Gallery of African Art. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Fund.
