About Our Speakers

Paul-Stopforth-1

 

Early in his career Paul Stopforth created bodies of work that were startling in their courageous engagement with the repressive society in which he lived. Invited to be artist in residence at Tufts University, Stopforth left South Africa for the United States in the late 1980s, despairing that there would ever be change in his country. He taught drawing at Harvard University and at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Stopforth has exhibited in galleries and museums in South Africa and the United States. In 2004 he delivered the Ruth First Memorial Lecture at Brandeis University. He is represented by The Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown.
