Throughout the month of April, Sarah Lawrence College presents a weekly Visual Arts Lecture series, which will include talks by noteworthy and early-career artists who will speak about their recent work.
Meleko Mokgosi (born in Francistown, Botswana and lives in New York) is an artist and assistant professor of practice at New York University. By working across history painting, cinematic tropes, psychoanalysis, and post-colonial theory, Mokgosi creates large-scale, project-based installations that interrogate narrative tropes and the fundamental models for the inscription and transmission of history alongside established eurocentric notions of representation in order to address questions of nationhood, anti-colonial sentiments, and the perception of historicized events. His artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including the Botswana National Gallery, the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art Museum, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Culture Center, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Lyon Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston.
All lectures take place on Tuesday afternoons in room 208 of the College’s Heimbold Visual Arts Center.
