Visiting Artist Lecture: Nyugen Smith

Drawing heavily on his West Indian heritage, New York-based artist Nyugen Smith is committed to raising the consciousness of past and present political struggles through his practice, which consists of sculpture, installation, video and performance. His work considers imperialist practices of oppression, violence and ideological misnomers. Smith earned an M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and in 2016 won a two-year Leonore Annenberg Fellowship in the Performing and Visual Arts, with which he conducted fieldwork in the Caribbean on mythical and historical figures from Caribbean and American literature.
