Starting in Fall 2020, Nsenga Knight: (Social) Projects is a series of live-streamed conversations and studio visits from the artist’s at-home workspace (or dining room table) in Cairo, Egypt. A native New Yorker, Knight moved to Egypt in the Fall of 2016 and due to the COVID-19 pandemic social distancing she was not able to make her annual return home to visit family and friends, or to conduct in-person studio visits.
The latest of Knight’s social practice projects, Nsenga Knight: (Social) Projects develops out of her desire to connect to family, friends and community through a specific medium about critical topics related to the Black community, artistic innovation, and Islamic rituals. In the case of Nsenga Knight: (Social) Projects, they discuss their connections to her art projects from far away places over various social media platforms.
