On Screen: Global Intimacy

02/05/2011 - 03/31/2011
On Screen: Global Intimacy
On Screen: Global Intimacy brings together 10 artists from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and the United States whose works investigate the transnational reach of globalization. Working primarily in video, they project images that traverse national boundaries and highlight the confluence of cultures and technologies that mark our time. These artists engage globalism as lived experience, questioning tradition and modernity.

Curated by Tumelo Mosaka, the exhibition is organized by the Krannert Art Museum, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Artists featured in the exhibition include: Tiong Ang, Alex Hérnandez-Dueñas, Andrew Dosunmu, Achillekà Komguem, Donna Kukama, Keith + Mendi Obadike, Kambui Olujimi, Hank Willis Thomas, and Fatimah Tuggar.

The exhibition and programming are sponsored by Frances P. Rohlen Visiting Artists Fund/College of Fine and Applied Arts; Illinois Arts Council; Krannert Art Museum Director’s Circle; Krannert Art Museum Council; the School of Art and Design Visitors Series; and the Center for African Studies (with support of the US Department of Education Title VI grant).

Additional support for the exhibition was provided by the H&R Block Foundation and the Missouri Arts Council.
