  • Art, Politics, and the Environment in Zina Saro-Wiwa's Port Harcourt Project

    Art, Politics, and the Environment in Zina Saro-Wiwa's Port Harcourt Project

    November 6, 2014
    featuring Amy Powell, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Krannert Art Museum

    Since 2013, artist and filmmaker Zina Saro-Wiwa has been in residence in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, making films, a video installation, photography, sculpture, and organizing work in social practice. The Port Harcourt Project recuperates art as a means for political and environmentalist engagement in the oil-polluted Niger Delta, the artist’s native region. The completion of the work is timed to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of the death of the artist’s father, the late writer, human rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Ken Saro-Wiwa (1941-1995).
    This talk will report on the work in progress and raise questions around Saro-Wiwa’s unique approach to art practice in the Niger Delta....
