“Does Heritage Have a Form?”

The talk is held in conjunction with the Tufts University Art Galleries exhibition Sanford Biggers, on view 8 October–15 December in the Tisch Family Gallery, Aidekman Arts Center/Medford. Does heritage have a form? The title of the talk takes its lead from Sanford Bigger’s collection African figures. Focusing on the relationship between collector and collection the talk reflects upon questions of contact, translation and mediation in the history of African art studies.
