Meleko Mokgosi: Scripto-Visual

The Current / Stowe / Art

“My interest in representation has to do with power,” the artist Meleko Mokgosi has explained, “because it is undeniably clear that there is a direct correlation between power and the production and dissemination of representation.” Politics have long been central to Mokgosi’s art. He was born and raised in Botswana, and moved to the U.S. in 2003, to participate in the Whitney Independent Study Program. He is now an assistant professor at Yale. Mokgosi’s work challenges long-held stereotypes. In “Scripto-visual,” images paired with text from poems and theoretical essays explore everyday life in America and Africa. —E.C.
