An exhibition of artists’s responses to the
LEGACIES OF BIAFRA
11 January – 24 March 2018
This Art Exhibition / multi-media show will feature artwork, which explores the on-going impact of war locally and globally, considering how the first civil war in post-independence Africa has influenced the perception of the continent internationally, as well as reshaping the social and political structures within Nigeria.
This exhibition commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Nigeria – Biafra civil war and explores the legacies of the British colonial divide and rule policy; global media coverage of the conflict; ethnic tensions, distrust and enmity which culminated in the civil war.
