Hammer Projects: Njideka Akunyili Crosby

1:14

Njideka Akunyili Crosby's (b. 1983) large scale works on paper combine collage, drawing, painting and printmaking, fusing African and American influences and creative traditions. Reflecting on contemporary, postcolonial African cosmopolitanism and her experiences as an expatriate living in America, her intimate paintings provide an important counter-narrative to the often troubled representation of Africa’s complex political and social conditions.
