More Info

This publication brings together texts by Olad Ajiboy Bamgboy, an artist born in 1963 in Odu-Eku, Nigeria, and based since 1966 in London. Bamgboy's politically-driven work interweaves ethical and aesthetic concerns with remarkable care, dexterity and attention to process--and this goes for both his art and his critical writings, which bring a fresh, non-Western perspective to current debates about technology and culture. As Bamgboy puts it in his artist's statement: ''Central to my academic interests, teaching philosophy and artistic-critical framework is the need to make sense of culture and its complexities during the purported era of globalization. Equally necessary for my practice is a critical appraisal of technology as a culture that saturates our world, leading to its ascendance as a dominant discourse... I am interested in the possibilities for a critical art practice that is informed by the analysis of our cultural condition while avoiding the pitfalls of hypercynicism that can confine us within a framework that longs for an old reality.''
