Artist Insights: Osaze Akil Stigler

Behind the Scenes with Osaze Akil

Visual artist Osaze Akil Stigler’s virtual exhibition, Revolutionizing the Systems We’re Transcending, focuses on his experience as an African American, combining the often opposing worlds of being of African descent and living under systems of racial supremacy. The works address the question of how the social conditioning of racial supremacy intersects with the healing of Black Americans as they evolve and understand themselves as a community, independent of and in spite of injustice.
