Topic: The Nigerian Experience
Speaker: Du Chau
Du Chau will speak about his time and experience in his recent trip to Nigeria. Du transported ceramic art by eleven Texas artists in his luggage to Nigeria and organized the first African-American exhibition. At the conclusion of the Nigerian exhibition, the eleven-ceramic works by Texas artists were added to the permanent museum collection.
On his return trip to Texas, Du carried the Nigerian art to Dallas for the upcoming exhibit at the South Dallas Cultural Center. Nigerian artworks will be added to the Dallas African American Museum Collection after the exhibition. This is an amazing exchange between artists of different cultures, working across the globe from one another.
