Moridja Kitenge Banza in Conversation

Wednesday, October 26, 7 PM
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario

Join Congolese-Canadian artist Moridja Kitenge Banza in conversation with AGO Curator, Arts of Global Africa and the Diaspora, Julie Crooks, about his work and the exhibition Et la lumiere fut (And there was light).

Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Moridja Kitenge Banza migrated to Canada in the mid-2000s and settled in Montreal, Quebec. In his multidisciplinary art practice, Banza draws on his complex feelings around identity and migration as a member of the African diaspora, incorporating his own memories as well documented histories to illuminate the brutal legacies of colonization.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Et la lumière fut (And there was light)
