Onyedika Chuke is a New York-based contemporary American Sculptor and Archivist born in Onitsha, Nigeria.
“The Forever Museum Archive” 2011-present, is a disquieting collection of objects in which Chuke analyzes modern-day protests and globalization. Often intrigued by international politics, his sculptures of machine weaponry are pertinent reminders of the technologically mediated wars that characterize our collective memory of conflict.
From 2013 to 2015, Chuke was part of the Queens Museum Studio Program. He is currently participating in fellowships at The Drawing Center, The Sculpture Center and Socrates Sculpture Park.
His archive has been included in exhibitions venues such as The American Academy in Rome and Art Basel Switzerland 2016.
Onyedika Chuke is a graduate of The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art (2011).
