C-MAP Africa Fellow
Nancy Dantas is an exhibition histories and visual studies scholar. Her research interests pivot on rethinking and reengaging archives within the decolonial present. Since 2000, she has worked interdiscursively as an educator, curator, writer, collections manager and translator. As a lecturer, she has sought to encourage students to scour material in the archives and think of history materially, as deposited and scattered, in ruins, whilst simultaneously valuing the re-membered through the living and practicing worker and artist.
In this short virtual interview, C-MAP Fellow Nancy Dantas discusses Generator—a conceptual and infrastructural proposal, hinged on restitution—envisioned by curators Azu Nwagbogu and Clémentine Déliss as part of their long-term program for the AAF, Lagos.
