Lecture: Ekene Ijeoma

Ekene Ijeoma is an artist, professor at MIT, and the founder and director of the Poetic Justice group at MIT Media Lab. Through both his studio and lab at MIT, Ijeoma researches social inequality across multiple fields including social science to develop artworks in sound, video, multimedia, sculpture and installation. Working from data studies and life experiences, and using both computational design and conceptual art strategies, he reframes social issues through artworks that embody and empower overlooked truths. His work has been presented by museums and galleries including the Contemporary Art Museum of Houston, Museum of the City of New York, Arts Club of Chicago, Neuberger Museum of Art, Annenberg Space for Photography, Design Museum London, and Storefront for Art and Architecture.
