From their website:
“In Studio with Sharon Obuobi is a series of conversations with artists, curators and influencers particularly in but not limited to the African arts.
The studio is a broad term referring to the artist working space, and the mental space for making and creating. Each episode is designed to stimulate open-minded conversation, and challenge listeners to see the world in new ways.”
Obuobi launched the podcast at the beginning of 2018, and guests on the first 10-episode season of In Studio include Ibrahim Mahama, Elisabeth Sutherland, and Lina Iris Viktor. New episodes air every Monday!
