More Than Monoliths: Artist Talk with Ebere Agwuncha

June 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

Event Navigation

Local artist Cameron Gray will host conversations with featured artists, diving into the beauty of Black creators and their creations. Each discussions will identify and explore how the featured artist defines themselves and their practice—whether they imbue their creations with an understanding of Blackness from their discipline, images of the Black body, historical American aspects of Blackness, or the beauty of African influence.
This project aims to dispel the notion of Blackness as a single monolithic experience, just as art can’t be reduced to a single form, media, or subject.
Thursday, June 24 at 7 p.m., via Zoom

Ebere Agwuncha is an Igbo designer and maker currently living in Chicago via Nigeria. She earned an Industrial Design degree from Iowa State University in 2019, and has since been working on several interdisciplinary projects in Chicago and abroad. Her current practice and research is focused on utilizing historical elements, such as the visual Uli literature from the Igbo people of Nigeria, and preserving them in contemporary iterations through object design. She aims to serve as a catalyst by addressing a personal hybridity and acknowledging divergent practices and traditions throughout the design field.
