The Nigerian-Cameroonian artist Samuel Fosso is arguably one of the most compelling photographers working in the genre of self-portraiture today. Samuel Fosso: Affirmative Acts is the first museum survey of his work in the United States. Samuel Fosso and Princeton Professor Chika Okeke-Agulu, curator, artist, and director of Program in African Studies, discuss Fosso’s photography practice, life experience, and the different series presented in the exhibition. Reception to follow.

Samuel Fosso: Affirmative Acts is curated by Princeton University Professor Chika Okeke-Agulu with Princeton students Silma Berrada, Class of 2022; Lawrence Chamunorwa, doctoral student; Maia Julis, Class of 2023; and Iheanyi Onwuegbucha, doctoral student. Organized by the Princeton University Art Museum in collaboration with The Walther Collection.
