Allan deSouza is internationally acclaimed for his photographic, installation, text, and performance works that restage historical evidence through counter-strategies of fiction, erasure, and (mis)translation.
DeSouza’s most recent work reenacts and upends iconic colonial narratives of discovery in Africa using imagined narratives, photographs, diaries, and sculptural works.
