In this Tate video, Nigerian-born painter Njideka Akunyili Crosby shows how using her own life, identity and history informs her work, where collage and photo layers reflect subjects inhabiting multiple spaces that exist together. Crosby will give a virtual lecture on Nov. 12 organized by the Department of Art and Art History, and co-sponsored by the UC Davis College of Letters and Science and the Manetti Shrem Museum.
