Join Emmanuel Osahor and Amin Alsaden for an online discussion about the issues informing the exhibition For a moment.
Infused with transnational poetics, the work of Nigerian-born artist Emmanuel Osahor centres on issues of place and displacement. Coalescing in lush paintings of gardens, these spaces speak to both the universality of the search for safe refuge as well as ongoing colonial practices that intensify cultural marginalization.
Alsaden is a curator, scholar, and educator whose work focuses on transnational exchanges of ideas and expertise across cultural boundaries. His curatorial practice is committed to disseminating inclusive narratives that challenge existing canons and hegemonic epistemological and power structures.
