NUNU Director selected by TOSTEM project
NUNU Arts and Culture Collective welcomes next month the arrival of four contemporary artists from countries of slavery export, import and labor as participants in the TOSTEM Artist-in-Residence Project.
Communications and Public Outreach Manager
Joining the four is Visual Artist and NUNU Arts and Culture Collective Director George Marks, the selected Louisiana/USA artist-in-residence participant.
Together, the artists (from Louisiana, France, Senegal, Antigua/Barbuda and Haiti) travel throughout Louisiana researching the history of slavery so as to begin work on new issues of art, reflective of their experiences and interpretations.
In 2016, the artists travel to Senegal, where together they again explore the history of slavery as related to a place of export, and again through new art, express their experiences. Works produced by the artists will be exhibited together as a traveling exhibition within participating countries.
