Born in Botswana, and living and working in the US, artist Meleko Mokgosi is currently codirector of graduate studies in painting and printmaking at the Yale School of Art, New Haven, CT, and cofounder of the Interdisciplinary Art and Theory Program, New York. Reconceptualizing the intersection of art history, postcolonial nationhood, and democracy within an interdisciplinary critical framework that includes paintings of epic scale, Mokgosi explores and redresses the ways in which Black subjects have become unattributed objects of empire and institution.
