CFG Ojuelegba Social IG ArtistTalk SQ v2 jpg

FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 2024, 4:30PM – 7:00PM at the Whitehead Campus Center, Haverford College, please join us for a 4:30pm Artist Talk by Emeka Ogboh followed by a reception to mark the opening of his exhibition “Ojuelegba”.

Emeka Ogboh’s art practice is deeply rooted in engaging with places through a multisensory approach, encompassing sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. His installations and culinary projects are collages of sensory elements, aimed at exploring the translation, transformation, and encoding of private, public, and collective memories and histories into diverse sensorial experiences. Ogboh’s work delves into the realm of sensory perception, capturing our connection to the world, shaping our understanding of reality, and providing a platform to address critical issues such as migration, globalization, and post-colonialism.

“Ojuelegba” is a new multisensory installation from renowned Nigerian artist Emeka Ogboh. Inspired by the district Ojuelegba in the heart of Lagos, Nigeria, Ogboh’s installation envisions an immersive experience where sight and sound entwine.
