In this presentation, Chika Okeke-Agulu will explore the making of postcolonial modernism in Nigeria in the 1950s and 1960s. He will examine the impact of the ideologies of decolonization on artistic modernism, as well as the intellectual and critical networks that enabled and sustained this work in the years after political independence.
