Get Tickets Free and open to the public
Artist Samuel Fosso will join Dr. Mark Sealy, Director of Autograph, London, for a conversation about photography and self-presentation in conjunction with the Menil’s exhibition Samuel Fosso: African Spirits, and the 2022 FotoFest Biennial exhibition, African Cosmologies: Redux. Completed in 2008, Fosso’s African Spirits series consists of fourteen large gelatin silver prints in which the artist portrays himself as prominent figures from 20th century Black liberation movements. Sealy originally selected this series by Fosso to include in the 2020 FotoFest Biennial program African Cosmologies: Photography, Time, and the Other.
