Visiting MAA exhibition at the Čukarica Cultural Centre Gallery:

WELCOME TO THE MUSEUM OF AFRICAN ART

The “Welcome to the Museum of African Art” exhibition offers an overview of posters, and exhibition and event brochures which were developed over the course of the 38 years that the Museum of African art: the Veda and Dr Zdravko Pečar Collection has been active.

Visitors will learn of the Museum’s history, various African topics which were dealt with through numerous events, and the type of activities this museum currently engages in.

This visiting exhibition is a unique opportunity for the wider public to learn about the works of renowned local designers such as Slobodan Mašić, Bata Knežević and others, who throughout the 1980s created some of the iconic posters of the Belgrade-based museum.

MAA curator Ivana Vojt conceptualised the exhibition and will hold a presentation at the opening event that will take place on March 25, at 7 p.m. at the Čukarica Cultural Centre Gallery, 5 Turgenjevljeva Street, Čukarica, Belgrade.

SWAHILI

LANGUAGE WORKSHOPS

There is a Swahili proverb: MTU NI WATU, which means A PERSON IS PEOPLE.

By learning Swahili, different customs, temperaments and behaviours are better understood.

Swahili, or Kiswahili, belongs to the Bantu language family, a large family of languages spoken across a large area of sub-Saharan Africa. Throughout the centuries, Swahili spread through the trade among different peoples and nations. In both Tanzania and Kenya, Swahili is a national language, however it is spoken by millions more across Eastern, Central and Southern Africa: in Uganda, Burundi, Somalia, Mozambique and South Africa.

AFRICAN MURALS: PLAYFULL WALLS

March 22 & 29, 2015
April 5, 13*, 19 & 26, 2015.

from 11-13h

What do you think, what did a traditional family home in Africa look like?
The walls of the house were decorated in murals.

Would you like to learn the language of walls and the way they communicated stories in Africa?
Each line, every shape, all the colours have a meaning.

Did you know that the rain washed away the painted wall murals and that they were renewed each year?
Not a single mural is ever the same!
 

The African Murals: Playful Walls workshops accompany the ongoing exhibition at the Museum: Traditional Murals of Africa, which shows the practice of painting houses that can be found across Africa. On the workshop we will show the way in which colours, drawings, reliefs and mosaics decorated the homes of the Igbo people (Nigeria), the Gurunsi (Burkina Faso and Ghana), Basotho and Ndbele (South Africa) peoples.
