My name is Adeola Enigbokan. I am an artist, researcher, writer and teacher based in New York City. My artistic/research practice involves creating interventions, which provide alternative frameworks for experiencing the city. This practice involves working at street level combining historical artifacts and archives, everyday public spaces and esoteric knowledge with habitual urban practices to create opportunities in which participants might reconsider their own ways of thinking and moving in the city. I have presented work in diverse venues: Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design, Moscow, The Center for Independent Social Research, Saint Petersburg, El Museo del Barrio, ConfluxCity Festival, Anthology Film Archive in New York, The Royal Institute for British Architects, The Royal Geographical Society in London and The Van Leer Institute in Jerusalem. I hold an MPhil in Anthropology from The New School for Social Research. I teach courses in Urban Studies, Media Studies, Sociology and Anthropology at universities in New York City, while completing a PhD in Environmental Psychology at the City University of New York.
