Oshodi Stock Exchange

Emeka Ogboh

Emeka Ogboh was a featured artist of North America’s first sound-only exhibit at the newly opened Le Son 7 gallery in New York. Ogboh’s audio, Oshodi Stock Exchange, was on display from January 10 to 14.

“This celebrated Nigerian artist transports listeners to a bustling Lagos bus station, a center of commerce that serves as a stark antithesis to the typical world of global stock exchanges. As a master pianist, Emeka Ogboh opens the piece by experimenting with the body of the piano, rather than the keys. As the 27-minute piece unfolds, the artist unfurls beautiful piano harmonies, overlaid with screeching car horns and loud announcements evoking disorienting enchantment.”
