Kambui Olujimi

Born and raised in Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn, Kambui Olujimi received his BFA from Parsons School of Design, NY and MFA from Columbia University, NY.

He has had solo exhibitions at the MIT List Visual Arts Center, MA; apexart, NY; and Art in General, NY. His works have premiered nationally at The Sundance Film Festival, Park City, Utah; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Studio Museum in Harlem, NY and the Museum of Modern Art, NY. Internationally he has exhibited at The Jim Thompson Art Center, Bangkok, Thailand;  Museo Nacional Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain; Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, Finland and Para Site, Hong Kong.

Olujimi has been awarded residencies from Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, ME, apexart, NY, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, NY, and Civitella Ranieri, Italy, and Fountainhead, FL, among others. He has received grants and fellowships from A Blade of Grass, The Jerome Foundation, and The Fine Art Work Center in Provincetown, MA.

Numerous periodicals, newspapers and journals have written about Olujimi work including The New Yorker, Art Forum, Art in America, Brooklyn Rail, The New York Times and Modern Painters. This fall, Galerie E.G.P. in Paris will present Olujimi's solo exhibition "Blind Sum", a series of long-exposure photographs inspired by 1930s dance marathons.

„My work looks to manifest collective psychic space as a means of investigating social practices, policies, and exchanges. I am interested in the seamless process of synthesizing invisible constructs into inevitabilities. I excavate the language and aesthetics of social, historical, and cultural conventions and bring them out of the world of the implicit. Once given gravity, weight, and shape it becomes possible to reveal their incongruities and their illusory nature,“ said Kambui Olujimi about his works.
