'What Was the Name of Africa Before the Colonialist Came?' is an exhibition by Trophy Ewila taking place in the Members' Gallery of the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art. In this exhibition, Ewila explores African Identity in relation to the imagination of Western/Capitalist/Colonial/White Supremacist ideology and culture. Looking at remembering as a form of agency to one’s liberty, we begin to unravel an incomplete story buried by the false narrative of the colonial imagination. Ewila’s exhibition requests the audience to linger with the question posed in the title while engaging with all pieces.
