A Life in Pictures
A two day photo exchange event.
apexart invites visitors to exchange pictures from their lives with selections from the photo archive of Brooklyn artist Kambui Olujimi. Come with an image of any size, medium, style, and subject and leave with a photo of your choice. For those unable to bring pictures to the event, there will be limited facilities for on-site printing. A Life in Pictures blurs the lines of biographical authorship in a world moving towards dematerializing means of communication, allowing guests to interject moments from their own lives into this larger life in pictures.
On Saturday, children ages 7-11 are encouraged to exchange photos from their lives with images in the archive.
Kambui Olujimi is currently a MFA candidate at Columbia University MFA 2013. He attended Bard College and is a graduate of Parsons School of Design and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Olujimi has had solo exhibitions at the de Saisset Museum, CA; Meyers Gallery, University of Cincinnati; Real Art Ways, CT; and Art in General, New York City. His works have been included in group exhibitions at the Museo Nacional Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain; Studio Museum in Harlem; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; Contemporary Arts Museum Houston; Brooklyn Museum; and the Museum of Modern Art, NY.
