About This Item: 
This publication celebrates the Antwerp-based, Nigerian-born artist Otobong Nkanga, who explores cultural and historical conflicts as well as the exploitation of the Earth's natural resources In capturing the fraught relationships between people and their environments, Otobong Nkanga illuminates the social, political, and economic histories--and legacies--of colonialism This beautifully illustrated book, which focuses on the artist's drawings, is published in conjunction with Nkanga's first US survey and showcases the artist's compelling and thought-provoking oeuvre An essay by exhibition curator Omar Kholeif reveals the rich background of Nkanga's varied subjects, including the historic realities of Nigeria, memories of her childhood, and the creation of covert global economies that emerge from the trade of natural resources In a narrative piece, the acclaimed author, photographer, and critic Teju Cole offers a poignant counterpart to Nkanga's work as he reflects on his experiences growing up in Nigeria Interspersed throughout the monograph are newly written poems by the artist.Copublished by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and DelMonico Books
