2022 Critical Issues Lecture Series: Dozie Kanu
February 25, 12:00 PM | Online via Zoom
The general public is invited to join degree-seeking individuals studying fine art in order to share ideas and raise questions about contemporary art. this week, Dozie Kanu will speak. Kanu’s research focuses on a concept of sculpture that looks into the limits of form, functionality, materiality and usefulness often filtered through a personal lens drawn from the artist’s experiences lived. His singular visual language criticizes western art history canons, subtly and elegantly revealing in the objects narratives involving colonialism and identity, focusing on their diasporic condition. His works resist classification and exist concurrently as communicative or performative objects. He has recently extended these inquiries into photography.
