Title

Exhibition (de)Tour: Excursions through the Non-Aligned by Dr Tania Roy, Senior Lecturer and Chair of Graduate Studies, English Literature, National University of Singapore

Description

This talk looks at the Non-Aligned exhibition as a speculative point-of-view on the past that suggests that the capacity to imagine new or other futures emerges only from an embodied encounter with disappointment. Taking this as a point of departure, Dr Roy will discuss the figurative and formal legacies of “Third World Man” as a way of engaging the historiographical and artistic strategies of the works on view, and their evocation of image-based temporalities that survive the episode of postcolonial closure.
