Lower Level, Auditorium (room 62)

Join us for a talk by exhibiting artist Allan de Souza, titled "Through the Black Country and Beyond."

Allan de Souza is internationally acclaimed for his photographic, installation, text, and performance works that restage historical evidence through counter-strategies of fiction, erasure, and (mis)translation. Through the Black Country, or The Sources of the Thames Around the Great Shires of Lower England and Down the Severn River to the Atlantic Ocean tinkers irreverently with iconic colonial narratives of "discovery" and "salvation" in Africa. 

 

This artist talk is sponsored in part by the Frances P. Rohlen Visiting Artist Fund/College of Fine and Applied Arts, the School of Art + Design Visitors Committee Fund, and Krannert Art Museum.

Krannert Art Museum exhibitions are made possible in part by a generous grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
