About Me: Seyi Adebanjo is a Queer gender-non-conforming Nigerian and current MFA candidate at Hunter College. As a media artist Seyi raises awareness around social issues through digital video, multimedia photography and writings. Seyi’s work is the intersection of art, media, imagination, ritual and politics.

Seyi’s art communicates with a distinct voice on many themes: “womyn” of color, immigration, sexual orientation, spirituality, post-colonialism, homophobia, poverty and white supremacy/ privilege. It passionately examines cultural practices, identities, cultural displacement and community transformation.

Seyi uses media as a tool to bridge spirituality and social justice while they co-directed Casa Atabex Ache’- The House of Womyn’s Power. Seyi has been an accomplished artist, performing with Sharon Bridgforth and performing at the Walker Art Center. Seyi’s work has recently been screened at the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival, Bronx Documentary Center and the Sydney Transgender International Film Festival. Seyi is currently a fellow with Queer/Art/Mentorship and Maysles Documentary Center Filmmakers Collaborative. Seyi at present is an artist in residence with Allgo working on The Orita Project, an international film and performance endeavor.
