Residence Dates: March 1 – 31, 2024

Kosisochukwu Nnebe is a Nigerian-Canadian conceptual artist, curator and writer whose practice draws inspiration from postcolonial and Black feminist thinkers such as Frantz Fanon, Edouard Glissant, bell hooks, and Sylvia Wynter. Working across installation, lens-based media and sculpture, Nnebe engages with topics that range from the politics of Black visibility, embodiment and spatiality to the use of foodways and language as counter-archives of colonial histories. At its core, Nnebe’s practice is interested in anti-colonial and -imperial world- building through acts of solidarity (human and otherwise), the troubling of colonial logics, and speculative (re)imaginings of otherwise pasts, presents and futures. Nnebe’s work has been shown in exhibitions across Canada and internationally, including the Montreal Museum of Arts, Plug In ICA, the Agnes Etherington Arts Centre, Optica Gallery, the Hausen Gallery in NYC, and Tolhuistuin in Amsterdam, with forthcoming exhibitions at the Art Museum of Toronto, SAW Centre, and the Dorothy Uber Bryan Gallery in Ohio. She is the recipient of the 2023 G.A.S. Felllowship started by Yinka Shonibare in Lagos, Nigeria, was one of two inaugural artists for NLS Kingston’s Sustainable Sculpture Residency in Maroon Town, Jamaica, and has been commissioned by Plug In ICA and the Mozilla Foundation.
