The Progress of Love is a collaborative project between the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, the Menil Collection in Houston, and the Centre for Contemporary Art in Lagos, Nigeria.
Host Steve Potter talked with Kristina Van Dyke, the Director of the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts and the curator of the exhibition, as well as British-Nigerian artist Zina Saro-Wiwa.
The exhibition features contemporary art work, including photography and multimedia installations, by African and Western artists.
It explores such questions: Is romantic love a Western notion? Does everyone think and feel love the same? How does culture, country, background, gender affect the way we think and feel about love or the way we mourn the loss of love?
