It's called Wa Na Wari, which means "our home" in the Kalabari language of southern Nigeria where artist Inye Wokoma's father was born. The home has been in Wokoma's family for five generations. Assuming guardianship of the estate in 2016, he wanted to find a way to keep the house in the family "for perpetuity," in a historically black neighborhood that's increasingly gentrified, increasingly less black. Turning the house into a black arts space is the first step in that journey. Wa Na Wari—a collaborative project run by Wokoma and other artists including Elisheba Johnson, Rachel Kessler, and Jill Freidberg—opened in April. The team curates group shows of three to four black artists per month. (JASMYNE KEIMIG)
