The Suya Man Series by Emmanuel Nwogbo
Come check out The Suya Man Series, created by digital collage artist, Emmanuel Nwogbo! This visual art installation is available in the Neptune Theatre Scotiabank Lobby during other Prismatic Arts Festival events being held at Neptune Theatre. The suya man is a street meat vendor found on every corner, working hard to survive and provide for his family. Through The Suya Man Series, Emmanuel Nwogbo uses digital collage to explore the relationship between the common meat vendor and the wider world – from political discourse and social justice to the absurd and humorous.
This event is free.
Prismatic Arts Festival
The Prismatic Arts Festival is a national, multidisciplinary arts festival that showcases and celebrates innovative work by Indigenous artists and artists of colour from across Canada. Based in Kjipuktuk / downtown Halifax, Prismatic has been bringing audiences vibrant, boundary-pushing new works in theatre, dance, music, film, visual arts, media arts, and spoken word since 2008. Prismatic is Art for Everyone and we work hard to champion artists and audiences in underserved communities.
