In STUDIO with Sharon Obuobi is a weekly podcast series of conversations with artists, curators and influencers particularly in the African arts. Passionate about stimulating open-minded discussions as inspired by art, Sharon created the series to tell the stories of creatives and challenge listeners to see the world in new ways. The podcast airs with weekly episodes on iTunes, Soundcloud, Stitcher and iHeartRadio.
IN STUDIO launched with its episode featuring Lina Iris Viktor, and presents guests Ibrahim Mahama (Jan 16), Hans Ulrich Obrist (Jan 23), Elisabeth Sutherland (Jan 30), Zak Ove (Feb 6), Sokari Douglas Camp (Feb 13), Atta Kwami (Feb 20), Joel Andrianomearisoa (Feb 27), Adebayo Bolaji (Mar 6), and Victor Ehikhamenor (Mar 13).
We love the first episode with Lina Iris Viktor, a dynamic conceptual artist who shares her views on post-colonial race relations, and reaching audiences with digital media. If you are inspired by black women who are brave, confident, innovative, and creative, this episode is for you! There’s also Elisabeth Sutherland, a Ghanaian performance artist who tells stories through dance and drama, and Sokari Douglas Camp, a Nigerian sculptor who creates impressive works from welding steel.
