About

In this public talk, artist Kelani Abass will speak on the impact of digital technology and photography on painting, the role of archives in making African history, and the significance of the CCA, Lagos on his practice. He will also engage the audience in a participatory performance using a manual hand numbering machine.

Abass lives and works in Lagos, Nigeria. His work explores the possibilities inherent in painting, photography and printing using archival materials to highlight personal stories against the background of social and political events.

This program is supported, in part, by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visul Arts, Dennis Elliott Founder’s Fund, The Greenwich Collection LTD., New York City Council District 34, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M.
