WURA-NATASHA OGUNJI

Wura-Natasha Ogunji works in drawing, video and performance. Her hand-stitched drawings on architectural tracing paper are inspired by daily interactions in Lagos, Nigeria. Her performances explore the presence of women in public spaces, labor, leisure, freedom and frivolity. 


Ogunji received a Guggenheim Fellowship, co-curated the 2018 São Paulo Biennial, and exhibited at Palais de Tokyo, the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Brooklyn Museum, Seattle Art Museum, CCA Lagos, and The Menil Collection. She holds a B.A. in anthropology from Stanford University and an M.F.A. from San Jose State University.

Born in St. Louis, Ogunji lives and works in Lagos.
