Utilising aspects of Afrofuturism and mysticism, artist Wilfred Ukpong creates compelling and poetic reflections on the crisis of environmental degradation and exploitation in the Niger Delta. Drawing on historical and personal archives, ecology politics and indigenous environmentalism, his work demonstrates how artmaking can be used as a tool for social empowerment and to confront continued, aggressive colonial practices.

Join us at the gallery for an artist led response to the large-scale mixed media photographs and performance-based films featured in Wilfred Ukpong: Niger-Delta / Future-Cosmos exhibition. Over the course of an hour, the artist will expand on his collaborative work with oil producing marginalised communities and reflect on the dynamic artworks that act as a creative intervention on the margins of two worlds: studio-based art and connective social practise. The tour will start promptly at 6:30pm and attendees are encouraged to engage and ask questions.
