CAMBRIDGE, MASS.- The MIT List Visual Arts Center presents List Projects: Kambui Olujimi. Kambui Olujimi works in a variety of media, ranging from film to installation to photography. His past projects have often included viewer participation in projects that explore social practices such as dream interpretation, penny wishing, and photo sharing. List Projects: Kambui Olujimi features A Life in Pictures, an interactive installation functioning as a social space where visitors are invited to exchange their own photos with selections from the artist’s photo archive. For this project, Olujimi provides over two thousand of his own photographs to exchange with visitors’ pictures from their lives. Participants are asked to record and share their thoughts about the personal photos that they have contributed and the ones they’ve exchanged with Olujimi’s archive. The picture exchange mimics the way the public shares images online but that exchange is recontextualized by creating a physical space for individuals to give and receive photographs. A Life in Pictures allows visitors to interject moments from their own lives into a larger shared life in pictures.

To investigate questions of community exchange through art making, the exhibition involves targeted collaborations with the MIT and local communities, including the MIT Center for Civic Media, the Cambridge Citywide Senior Center, Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, and 826 Boston, a non-profit writing center. Olujimi will also lead an Independent Activities Period (IAP) class at MIT exploring intersections between photography and storytelling.

Brooklyn artist Kambui Olujimi (b. 1976) received his BFA from Parsons School of Design, NY and MFA from Columbia University, NY. He has had solo exhibitions at the de Saisset Museum, CA; apexart, NY; and Art in General, NY. His works have been included in group exhibitions at the Museo Nacional Reina Sofia, Madrid; Studio Museum in Harlem, NY; and the Museum of Modern Art, NY. Olujimi has been awarded fellowships from the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Santa Fe Art Institute, The apexart Outbound Fellowship to Kellerberrin, Australia, and was a two-year fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA. The artist has recently been awarded the Artist Files grant from A Blade of Grass, NY.

List Projects: Kambui Olujimi is curated by List Director Paul C. Ha.
