Smith at New Jersey’s largest visual arts event, Art Fair 14C. The Fair will run from November 10-13, 2022, at the historic Armory located at 678 Montgomery Street, Jersey City, New Jersey.
Nyugen E. Smith is a first-generation Caribbean-American interdisciplinary artist based in Jersey City, NJ where he maintains a studio at Mana Contemporary. Through found object sculpture, mixed media drawing, performance, photography, sound, video, and writing, Nyugen deepens his knowledge of historical and present-day conditions of Black African descendants in the diaspora.

TheNew York Times’s art reviewby Siddhartha Mitter and Will Heinrich, on September 8, 2022, lists Sean Horton (Presents) (Platform #7) one-person show, Nyugen E.
