Bukola Koiki Shortlisted for Emerging Voices Award
March 28, 2019
Congratulations to Bukola Koiki, alumna of the MFA in Applied Craft and Design program ('15), who was recently shortlisted by the American Craft Council for the 2019 Emerging Voices Award. The Emerging Voices Award celebrates new makers and thinkers significantly shaping directions and dialogues in contemporary craft.
Bukola Koiki is a Nigerian-American interdisciplinary artist whose work strives to collapse the single story of the immigrant experience by exploring the challenging liminal space they inhabit. Her multidimensional fiber works reflect her material and technical curiosity, featuring prints rendered with embroidered collagraph plates, giant paper beads employing Nigerian hair-threading techniques, and more. She has exhibited nationally and has also been featured in Surface Design magazine and online on Art21 Magazine.
Koiki is currently an AICAD teaching fellow at Maine College of Art.
Congratulations to MFA in Visual Studies alumna Tabitha Nikolai who has been invited to be an artist-in-residence for the Spring 2019 Creative Exchange Lab at Portland Institute for Contemporary Art.
