On Artistic Practice
Artists and Curators in Relation
Abraham Oghobase and Noa Bronstein
Friday, July 7, 1pm - 3pm
This dialogue between Noa Bronstein and Abraham O. Oghobase considers how care enters into relationships between artists and curators and within an artist's practice. Extending what started as a casual, summer park conversation, this program is interested in how care manifests both within and beyond the formal structures that make artistic practice possible.
Abraham Onoriode Oghobase is a visual artist living and working in Toronto, Canada. In his photography-based practice, he engages with issues around knowledge production, land, colonial history and representation by deconstructing traditional modes of making, and experimenting with the narrative and material potential of images and objects. Oghobase’s work has been exhibited widely, including at Goodman Gallery, Johannesburg; Pace Gallery, London; KADIST, Paris; Circuit Gallery, Toronto and Art Twenty One, Lagos. He is also one of seven artists featured in this year’s New Photography exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. He holds an MFA in Visual Arts from York University, Toronto.
Noa Bronstein is the Executive Director of Gallery TPW and an independent curator.
