The Progress of Love is a collaborative project between the Menil Collection, Houston; the Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos; and The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, St. Louis. Developed through a unique cross-continental conversation and linked by a shared website and publication, this endeavor presents overlapping exhibitions and events at three institutions that explore our conceptions and experiences of love – as an ideal, as a lived experience,and as something lost. The Progress of Love exhibition at the Pulitzer explores the end of love and its aftermath through works by the British-Nigerian artists Zina Saro-Wiwa and Yinka Shonibare, MBE, the French artist Sophie Calle, and the American-Jamaican-Nigerian artist Temitayo Ogunbiyi.
