Making her debut in Paris, France, Nneka will be featured in Backslash Gallery's, Beings: CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN AND DIASPORIC REAPPROPRIATIONS OF BODY AND IDENTITY The fundamental question of the identity of the black body, multiple, fractured, sometimes to the point of uprooting, is a recurrent theme of artistic explorations in contemporary creation. The aesthetic reappropriation of this body by artists is often a component of an historical, geopolitical and private discourse addressing our contemporary Western societies.
Backslash and the Barter art collectors' club are holding a major exhibition featuring artists who work on different continents but are all connected to (or rooted in) contemporary African art and its diaspora.
Beings represents a remarkable opportunity to highlight the ongoing artistic dialogues between contemporary Africa and Afro-descendants, regardless of where they live.
