Guest Projects Digital 2022
Guest Projects Digital and Yinka Shonibare Foundation announced Chiizii as the recipient of a new pilot Digital Research Residency in June 2022. The initiative was conceived with the intention of providing an emerging, UK-based African and/or Caribbean diaspora curator or artist, with an opportunity to lead a collaborative research project investigating the intersection of art and design, ecology and food or migration and identity.
The themes and concept were inspired by the two unique buildings that lie at the heart of Guest Artists Space, the newly launched residency project in Nigeria developed by Yinka Shonibare CBE RA. The three-month residency was segmented into a two-month research period followed by a one-month digital public-facing programme.
