 Written by one of the foremost scholars of African art and featuring 129 color images, Postcolonial Modernism chronicles the emergence of artistic modernism in Nigeria in the heady years surrounding political independence in 1960, before the outbreak of civil war in 1967. Chika Okeke-Agulu traces the artistic, intellectual, and critical networks in several Nigerian cities. Zaria is particularly important, because it was there, at the Nigerian College of Arts, Science and Technology, that a group of students formed the Art Society and inaugurated postcolonial modernism in Nigeria. As Okeke-Agulu explains, their works show both a deep connection with local artistic traditions and the stylistic sophistication that we have come to associate with twentieth-century modernist practices. He explores how these young Nigerian artists were inspired by the rhetoric and ideologies of decolonization and nationalism in the early- and mid-twentieth century and, later, by advocates of negritude and pan-Africanism. They translated the experiences of decolonization into a distinctive "postcolonial modernism" that has continued to inform the work of major Nigerian artists.

 Par l'un des plus célèbres spécialistes de l'art africain contemporain, la mise en lumière de l'émergence du modernisme artistique nigerian dans la période exaltante débutant autour de l'Indépendance et qui durera jusqu'au début de la guerre du Biafra en 1967.

Chika Okeke-Agulu (Umuahia - Nigeria, 1966) est nigerian d'ethnie igbo, artiste, universitaire, historien de l'art, conservateur et auteurs de nombreux articles et ouvrages. Il vit à Princeton, New Jersey.
