This exhibition brings together art works and texts created between 2020 – 2022 that are part of Dr. Imo Nse Imeh’s developing project titled “Benediction”.

Dr. Imo Nse Imeh is a visual artist and scholar of African Diaspora art, whose work considers historical and philosophical issues around the Black body and cultural identity.

With the “Benediction” series, Imeh tells the story of a group of angels that have been cast down to earth and bound to the skins of Black boys and men. The angels’ task is to serve as witnesses to the traumas and triumphs that they experience through their “hosts.”
