Kosisochukwu "Kosi" Nnebe is a Nigerian-Canadian visual artist raised in Gatineau, Quebec, currently based in Ottawa. Her work aims to combine critical theory and visual arts practice, and explores the role of art as an interactive and disruptive force. This two part interview includes a conversation with Nigerian-Canadian curator and co-host Liz Ikiriko and addresses the challenges of growing up Black in predominantly white communities (Nnebe in Gatineau, Ikiriko in Regina). Together, they reflect on the concept of "home-going" and the impact of African-American culture on Black communities in Canada and the wide diversity of cultures within the African Diaspora.
