Art Exhibit
Nyugen Smith's solo exhibition is an interdisciplinary exploration of art and material culture compiled by the New Jersey based artist, Nyugen Smith. Embracing the role of cultural informer, Smith draws on his West Indian heritage. He is interested in raising consciousness of past and present political struggles through the themes and symbols incorporated into his painting, sculpture, installation and performance. Growing up in Trinidad, Smith was influenced by the conflation of African culture and the residue of British colonial rule encountered in his daily life. Responding to this unique cultural environment, Smith's art is a reaction to imperialist practices and ideological misnomers.
