Precious Okoyomon is a Nigerian American artist and writer living and working in New York.
She attended Shimer College in Chicago. Okoyomon has had solo exhibitions at the LUMA Westbau, Zurich, and two-person exhibitions at Real Fine Arts, New York (with Hannah Black) and Quinn Harrelson/Current Projects (with Puppies Puppies). Her work was included in the 13th Baltic Triennial and in group exhibitions at Exo Exo, Paris, and the ICA, London. Okoyomon has read or performed at The Kitchen, New York, Artist’s Space, New York, and The Serpentine Galleries, London. Her first book Ajebota (2016) was published by Bottlecap Press, and her second book But Did U Die? is forthcoming from Wonder in the spring of this year. Her work examines a history of the criminalization and racialization of light, darkness, and the sun (which Okoyomon believes to be indisputably black.)
