takes part in Conference on
Chinese Presence in Africa and Africans in China
Mr. Uzoma representing Africa Diaspora Initiative (ADI) as its Art Director had featured works from his recent research on fabric painting to produce a large reproduction of the frame of China's Chairman Mao Zedong whom he described as "Iconic figure of China-Africa cooperation" while the President of (ADI), the Honorable Njoku SaintJerry A., who was unavoidably absent featured works from his previous photographic collections of Africa's cultural presence in China,.
Researchers had presented works on relationships between Africa and China, Business, Trust, Betrayal, Social relationships and Marriage. Rev. Dr. Basil had used the occasion to highlight on Nigerian immigrant contributions in China's development and advise that researchers should make good use of key individuals and Af r ican consulates present in the city of Guangzhou to fetch authentic information and not base their research reports on some locals and foreigners who are mere short term visitors to China and are not in the capacity to give proper information.
Uzoma had featured other works he titled "Clash of Powers "a photographic work picked from a Chinese Contemporary Dance Theater drawing attention to the challenges in the society today, "these works demonstrates ascendance in the power struggle and evokes the consciousness of human struggles between good and evil, success and failures in a continued quest for better life and supremacy, It is hoped that these works will contribute to our understanding and serve as a platform to strengthen China-Africa Co-operations especially in cultural exchange." He said.
