Fall 2019 Artists-in-Residence

Upcoming Events

“I create echoes through time and space; the beauty, value and majesty of my ancestors and our stories. We are infinite. Our power, excellence, wisdom and legacy continue to grow with time and through natural order.”
CAI Artist-in-Residence, Eniola Dawodu, will speak to UB students about her creative research and explorations across costume, garment, and sculpture. Moved to release boundaries and reframe her practice with intention and attention to materiality rooted in the ancestral, she will speak to the narrative potency of ancestral African dress practices and the cultural significance of honoring one's personal truth.
For her CAI Residency, Eniola Dawodu created a new textile work, IRAN SI IRAN (2019). This piece will be featured in the second exhibition of Punctures at Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Arts Center. The exhibition will open on Nov. 22 with an Artist Talk.
