In mid-January this year, several delegates from the South African Visual Art Historians (SAVAH), in association with the International Committee of the History of Art (CIHA), congregated in Johannesburg to attend a four-day colloquium hosted by the Wits School of Arts at the University of the Witwatersrand. Concerns regarding the unequal distribution of resources around the globe and the challenges posed by postcolonial societies to the older methods and concepts of Western art history were addressed by this colloquium. The keynote speaker was Professor Amareswar Galla, from the Department of Museum Studies at the University of Queensland, Australia. He is a world expert on museums, sustainable heritage development and poverty alleviation through culture. He has also been a key advisor to the UNESCO World Commission for Culture and Development. For more on this, see Royce Smith's review in the Views and (Re)views section.
