Conceptual Framework

The Walther Collection presents a survey of works by Samuel Fosso, one of the most renowned contemporary artists working in Africa. Since the mid-1970s, Fosso has focused on self-portraiture by transforming his body through performance, envisioning variations on African identity in the postcolonial era.

For the first time in the United States, this exhibition brings together Fosso's work from The Walther Collection, including vintage self-portraits and studio prints with new and recent photographs, featuring selections from his magisterial series "African Spirits" and "The Emperor of Africa."
