2017 Residency:
March through May 2017
December 2017 through February 2018

Archivist and sculptor Onyedika Chuke is internationally recognized for his disquieting collection of objects, The Forever Museum Archive (2011-present). His politically charged sculptures act as symbolic markers of histories that shape our collective memory of conflict, culture and politics. Chuke studied at The Cooper Union and is a participant of The Drawing Center’s Open Sessions Fellowship 2016-2018. His past fellowships include SculptureCenter’s In Practice Fellowship 2016 and Socrates Sculpture Park’s Emerging Artist Fellowship 2016-2017.
