Plug In ICA is delighted to announce Kosisochukwu Nnebe as the final artist of the STAGES Speaker Series!
In the run-up to the summer exhibitions, we will be conducting a succession of talks as part of the STAGES Speaker Series. Each artist will share their practice with the Winnipeg public in a formal presentation. Throughout the winter, as part of their research, all visiting artists will get the chance to tour and visit various sites across the city to become acquainted with local culture and history ahead of their summer project.
Please join us for Kosisochukwu Nnebe’s talk.
When: Thursday, April 6th, 2023 | 6 pm
Where: The Manitoba Theatre for Young People, Studio 1, 2 Forks Market Road.
Kosisochukwu Nnebe is a Nigerian-Canadian visual artist. Using phenomenology as a methodology, Nnebe’s practice makes use of hesitation as a generative form of affect that opens the viewer and the artist herself up to new forms of understanding. Touching on themes such as the process of racialization, diasporic experience, and epistemic violence and restitution, her work takes her lived experience as a starting point for engaging viewers on issues both personal and structural in ways that bring awareness to their own imbrication and complicity.
Nnebe’s work has been exhibited at AXENEO7, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Place des Arts, the Art Gallery of Guelph, the Nia Centre, Studio Sixty Six, Z-Art Space, Station 16, and the Mohr Gallery in Mountain View, California. She has given presentations on her artistic practice and research at universities across Quebec, including Laval, McGill and Concordia, has facilitated workshops at the National Gallery of Canada and the Ottawa Art Gallery, and was an instructor of Art and Criticism at the Ottawa School of Art.
