Allan deSouza: Through the Black Country...

Sept.4-Nov. 4, 2018

Through the Black Country, or, The Sources of the Thames Around the Great Shires of Lower England and Down the Severn River to the Atlantic Ocean is based on the expedition diaries of deSouza’s avatar, Hafeed Sidi Mubarak Mumbai, a fictional Zanzibari who explores London during the 2016 Brexit vote. Combining text and image, intrigue and artifice, Hafeed’s mixed-media accounts upend imperial narratives of discovery to cast critical light on the city’s neoliberal present.

Organized by Krannert Art Museum, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Curated by Allyson Purpura with Bay Area artist Allan deSouza
