From the George Washington Carver Museum:
“By Temi Olujobi, Hypatia Sorunke, and Adrian Armstrong
This exhibition is a culmination of the Museum’s first artist residency. Learn more about the inagural cohort below:
Temitope Olujobi: Nigerian-American Architect turned Game Designer originally from the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland. They began their indulgence into all things 3D and digital art in the Second Life modification community making freakishly delightful virtual dwellings for some very eccentric gamers. Their desire to visualize the endless possibilities of future worlds has informed much of the digital artwork they have crafted in their career.
Hypatia Sorunke: Writer and visual storyteller whose work explores the links between culture, humanity, and power. Through portraiture, sound design, and video they reveal the many connections between nature and identity. This body of work creates space for deep reflection and hope. In a time where there are national conversations around land sovereignty, statehood, and citizenship—Sorunke creates space for their unique experience in America’s evolving landscape.
Adrian Armstrong: Musician, painter, printmaker, and mixed-media artist from Omaha, Nebraska. Now based in Austin, Adrian’s work explores Black identities and the perception of Black bodies in predominantly White American spaces. Some of the themes explored in Armstrong’s work include mental health, systematic oppression, and erasure, nostalgia, and personal development.
Special Consideration: Lise Ragbir, Dr. Eddie Chambers, Dawn Okoro, Studio Dzo, Dr. Awa Jhanga, Kahron Spearman, Kendyll Gross, Riley Reed, Dr. Moyo Okediji, Kaila Shedeen, Andrea Mellard, Shani Hebert, Eto Otitigbe, and Alissa McCain.
The exhibit opens on August 27, 2021, and will run through January 15, 2022.”
