Iké Udé Artist Lecture

Sat 17th Oct, 2015

4 - 7PM
Ford Foundation, 105 Close, Banana Island, Ikoyi Lagos
Ike Ude

Please join us for an artist lecture by Ike Ude on the performative essence of fashion and the fashioned-self.

Ike Ude will discuss how the markers of fashion—as both signifier and signified—denote the core essence of cultural identity and remain the most symbolic visible index of culture.

This lecture is kindly supoorted by the Ford Foundation.

Bio

With his ongoing photographic self-portraits, Sartorial Anarchy, dressed in varied costumes across geography and time the work of Nigerian-born Iké Udé explores a world of dualities: photographer/performance artist, artist/spectator, African/postnationalist, mainstream/marginal, individual/everyman and fashion/art. As a Nigerian born,  New York based artist, conversant with the world of fashion and celebrity, Udé gives conceptual aspects of performance and representation a new vitality, melding his own theatrical selves and multiple personae with his art. Udé plays with the ambiguities of the marketplace and art world, particularly in his seminal art, culture, and fashion magazine, aRUDE and recently his style blog, theCHIC INDEX
