Glendinning Creates Body of Work to be Displayed in South Africa
For seven months in 2019, Peter Glendinning, professor in Michigan State University’s Department of Art, Art History, and Design, traveled throughout South Africa to each of its nine provinces where he created a body of work inspired by the words of Nelson Mandela in collaboration with 48 South African university students and portrait subjects.
That body of work, titled "Attached to the Soil", will now be displayed in art galleries across South Africa, including Durban University of Technology, Nelson Mandela University, North-West University, Stellenbosch University, University of the Free State and University of Pretoria. In addition to the exhibit, Glendinning will be a visiting artist for a week at each of these institutions, serving as a Fulbright Program Specialist coordinated by the School of the Arts at the University of Pretoria.
