Enstranging the City

Friday, April 10, 2015 - 5:00pm

Following a walk in the neighborhood with a group of Mile End residents, Adeola Enigbokan, in collaboration with Ronald Rose-Antoinette, will present her projects such as Archiving the City and Enstranging the City in relation to the concept of “enstrangement.” The latter refers to a process or act of endowing “strangeness” to an everyday object or situation through modifying one’s perception or by accident. All are welcome to join the discussion.

This event is part of Dominique Fontaine's curatorial research residency at articule for the year 2015.

Free entrance and warm ambiance. articule is wheelchair accessible but unfortunately not its washroom.

Adeola Enigbokan is an artist and writer based in New York City. She holds a BA from Columbia University, where she studied Anthropology and Visual Arts, an MPhil in Anthropology and Historical Studies from The New School for Social Research, and a PhD in Environmental Psychology from the City University of New York, where she completed her doctoral dissertation on urban interventionism and critical archival practices in contemporary Russian art. Her art-research practice explores everyday interactions between citizens, living and dead, and the architectures that shape urban experience. Her work has appeared internationally in diverse contexts, reflecting the transdisicplinarity of her practice: Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design (Moscow), Center for Independent Social Research (Saint Petersburg), Van Leer Institute (Jerusalem), El Museo del Barrio (New York), Anthology Film Archives (New York), Royal Geographical Society (London), Royal Institute for British Architects (London), Beijing Normal University, vessel art project (Italy) and Open Engagement (Portland).
