Nkechi Ebubedike is a Nigerian-American artist working out of a studio in Brooklyn, New York. She is a MA graduate from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, London (2011), and a BFA from the Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, including stints at École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, France. Working across painting, sculpture, photography and installation, Ebubedike makes material assemblages and videos, experimenting with the distortion and suspension of meaningful, culturally significant images.
With a variety of international group and solo exhibitions in recent years, a successful showing in London (2019) led to Ebubedike’s work being acquired for the permanent collection of CCS Bard College Hessel Museum of Art, New York. Notable exhibitions include, National Art Competition/AAF Winner, Juror’s Prize, Lagos (2014); Wazobia Lounge, Africa Village, London Olympics, London (2012) and ARTSCOOL, Regina Gouger Miller Gallery, Pittsburgh (2006). Her work was also included in the publication Memory, MambuBadu Photography Collective Magazine in the April 2011 issue.
