Art as a Critique of Bad Governance in Nigeria: Some Examples

By Institute Of African Studies, University Of Nigeria, Nsukka.

Summary

Abstract:
Governance has been seen as the way decisions are arrived at, implemented, and justified and used to manage public resources and affairs at local, state, national, organizational and global levels of human societies. This paper sets out to look at the contributions of art towards criticizing negative aspects of governance in Nigeria. It shows how art, especially painting, was used as a tool for exposing the negative sides of governance in Nigeria. For this, the issue of whether art is tangible enough to play the important role of interrogating bad aspects of governance in Nigeria was looked at. More so, the vision of the artists, themes that deal with and address the negative aspects of governance in Nigeria, and photographs of works were relied on in this study to show how relevant they are in exposing bad governance in Nigeria. Furthermore, this study has revealed that art is a veritable tool for interrogating, and exposing those bad sides of governance in Nigeria, and recommended that every profession in like manner should make their own contributions towards challenging bad governance in Nigeria, as no people can successfully fight bad governance and achieve sustainable progress if they do not first of all rise up to its true situation -calling things their real names.
