Rohan Ayinde [He/His] b. 1992 is an interdisciplinary artist and poet based between London and Chicago. His work traverses audio, visual and literary forms and embraces installation and performed elements. Most recently, his practice has engaged with the phenomenon of the black hole and attempts to excavate an architecture of ideology, investigating how the politics of place intersect with the conceptual - with particular focus on global ethnic majority communities.
Ayinde is one half of i.as.in.we, a wayward/motile artistic duo formed with Yewande YoYo Odunubi in 2020. He received his MA in Visual and Critical Studies from SAIC (2019). He is the gallery manager for Blanc (Chicago), is a curatorial fellow with ACRE, and has curated shows at Blanc, ACRE Projects, and NOW Gallery.
