About The Event

Behind the Lens: Ngadi Smart 
Friday, May 6, 12 p.m. CT  
Presented virtually on Zoom 

Ngadi Smart is a visual artist based between Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire and London, U.K. In her photography, she documents cultures, subcultures, and intimacy, with a focus on how people self-identify and choose to present themselves in front of the lens. She documents Black sensuality, through an African point of view. Smart aims to show “as many representations of African people, and what it means to be African.”
