Fatimah Tuggar: In/Visible Seams

Sunday, May 12, 2013 at 12:00pm to 5:00pm

Mechanical Hall Mechanical Hall, University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19711, USA

Artist Fatimah Tuggar’s ink-jet on vinyl prints fashion alternate vistas through processes that include photography, image capture, cut and paste, superimposition, and digital manipulation. Working with methods she describes as montage, collage and assemblage, her images, videos and objects offer distinct combinations of wit and irony, compassion and critique. Sourcing a global range of imagery and mining archival as well as contemporary media, Tuggar’s fusion images and videos are not fictions per se but rather surreal combines of diverse realities made starker by their juxtaposition. In/Visible Seams presents a selection of large-scale computer montages showcasing the artist’s enticing and often unsettled temporal, spatial and geographic conjunctions. Tuggar’s renowned video collage, Fusion Cuisine (2000) and her assemblage work, Tum Tum & Tabarma (1998) are included in this solo exhibition of her work. Born in 1967 in Kaduna, Nigeria, Fatimah Tuggar attended the Blackheath School of Art in London, received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and her MFA from Yale University. She is on the faculty of the University of Memphis.


The artist will be on campus Tuesday, March 5, 2013 (Smith Hall, Room 130) to discuss her digital montage work and share her perspectives on the politics of gender, religion, and power in Nigeria today.


Following the lecture in Smith Hall, a reception will be held at Mechanical Hall Gallery, 6 – 7pm. Lecture and reception are open to the public free of charge. For registration, write to universitymuseums@udel.edu or call (302) 831-8037.
