Manifesta Biennial | Palermo, Italy

Making her debut into the European art market, Nneka has been selected as one of the artist in the ReSignifications: The Black Mediterranean Exhibitionat the Manifesta European Contemporary Art Biennial 12 in Palermo, Italy. A follow up to its sister exhibit at Harvard University, ReSignifications: The Black Mediterranean offers a revision and re-engagement of "African bodies in European art, culture, and history as it interprets and interrogates the "Blackamoor" trope in Western culture that emerged at the intersection of cross-cultural encounters shaped by centuries of migration, exchange, conquest, servitude, and exile."
