Artist Residency

Lagos/Atlanta: Sister City Rising

Fifty years ago, the City of Atlanta and Mayor Maynard Jackson announced a historic moment as Atlanta welcomed Lagos, Nigeria, as one of its first Sister Cities, starting a remarkable partnership between two vibrant communities.

To celebrate this enduring cultural and civic bond, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is hosting LagosAtlanta: Sister City Rising, a 10-week artist residency that will result in new pieces for the Westside Trail and become a highlight of the 2024 exhibition season. The exhibition was made possible thanks to Presenting Sponsors Jamestown and Ponce City Market.

I am pleased to announce that I have been selected as one of the artists for the ArtOmi residency from June 13 to July 9 2019 in the beautiful town of Ghent in upstate New York.


I am very pleased and honored to announce that I have been selected as 2019’s Sarah Lee Elson, Class of 1984, International Artist-in-Residence, at Princeton university.

About the Program
Established in 2010, the Sarah Lee Elson, Class of 1984, International Artist-in-Residence Program was made possible by a generous gift from Princeton alumna Sarah Elson. The program complements two of the University’s most important endeavors of the last ten years: its arts initiative and its global initiative. Once a year, the Museum invites an artist working outside the United States to visit campus for two to four days. During his or her residency, the artist presents a public lecture and engages in workshops, small group discussions, and one-on-one meetings with faculty as well as graduate and undergraduate students. The program offers Princeton’s community the opportunity to meet some of the most distinguished, exciting, and compelling artists working today. It hopes to catalyze forms of exchange that are intimate, robust, and lasting and to initiate a series of cross-disciplinary and trans-geographic conversations. In order to provide an ongoing record of the residency program, a work of art by each visiting artist is acquired for the Museum’s collection. The selection of the artist-in-residence is made annually at the invitation of the Princeton University Art Museum.

In combination with the residency, my work “Bosede” from the Ivie series, now forms a part of the permanent collection of the Princeton University Art Museum.
