“The Progress of Love”
Event on 2012-12-05 17:00:00
"The Progress of Love" exhibition at the Pulitzer specifically explores the end of love and its aftermath through works by the British-Nigerian artists Zina Saro-Wiwa and Yinka Shonibare, MBE, the French artist Sophie Calle, and the American-Jamaican-Nigerian artist Temitayo Ogunbiyi. With inclusion of both African and Western art, the exhibition invites visitors to examine their own ideas about love and its loss.
"The Progress of Love" is an unprecedented, transatlantic collaboration between The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis, The Menil Collection in Houston, and the Centre for Contemporary Art in Lagos, Nigeria, that explores the universal emotion of love. The three concurrent but unique exhibitions that make up "The Progress of Love" constitute a narrative arc, addressing love as an ideal, love as a lived experience, and love as something lost.
The exhibition at the Pulitzer is free and open to the public. "The Progress of Love" is on view from November 16, 2012 – April 20, 2013. The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts is open on Wednesdays from 12-5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
