Rouse Visiting Artist Lecture: Otobong Nkanga


Thursday, March 8, 2018, 6:30pm to 8:30pm


GSD, Gund Hall Piper Auditorium

Please join us for a lecture by visual artist Otobong Nkanga. 

Remarks by a renown Nigerian visual artist whose work is deeply rooted in the politics of colonialism. Hosted by the Graduate School of Design.

Otobong Nkanga’s multidisciplinary practice spans across drawing, photography, installation, video and performance, and focuses on the interrelation between environment, architecture and history. Her work weave together concerns about land, natural resources, architecture, the value connected to them and the dynamic status of remembrance. These predominantly political topics are incorporated into poetic combinations of autobiographic and collective narratives, memories and concepts. Nkanga will be discussing past works and projects that have led up to her more recent project Carved to Flow that was first presented at Documenta 14 in Athens, Greece and Kassel, Germany.

Free and open to the public.
