VENANCIO, José Carlos. Peripheral contexts of artistic creativity: the Angolan case. Comunicação e Sociedade [online]. 2018, vol.34, pp.211-222. ISSN 1645-2089.

After describing and discussing the conditions of artistic production in peripheral contexts, the course of the Angolan visual arts from the end of the colonial period to the present time is analysed, a period when these enjoy a relative international projection. This projection is the result of a double sustainability: on the one hand, the material conditions for creation and artistic production and, on the other hand, the sustainability or maintenance of an aesthetic pattern rooted in the tradition and history of the country.

Keywords : Angolan art; artistic production; periphery.
