Focusing on the late period of British colonial rule in Nigeria (1900 to 1960) we will discuss the work of a number of artists represented in the collection including Ben Enwonwu, Thomas Ona and Yusuf Grillo. Through these examples, we will explore the artists' perspectives on the representation of identity through material culture.
