This Cup

This Letter is part of an ongoing series of social media posts created by Black and Indigenous artists for the WAG in solidarity with the ongoing Black Lives Matter and Justice for Black Lives movements.⁠

Chukwudubem Ukaigwe (@chukwudubemukaigwe) is a Nigerian born song, dispersed by a transient Atlantic breeze, currently passing through Treaty 1 Territory, so called Canada. He consciously uses a variety of mediums to relay a plurality of ideas at any given time. He views his art as a conversation, or a portal into one, and in some instances, as an interpretation of this ongoing exchange. Chukwudubem weighs an occurrence, feeling, or idea on a scale and then creates a narrative in his own language.⁠
