Ohemaa Dixon (1998) is a photographer located in the NY area. Her artistic work focuses on capturing moments of the black experience and black feminine narrative through the lens of Afrofuturism and archive. She commonly uses the notion of "visualizing theory" of black scholarship sources as a driving influence in her work. She has had work featured in publications and on platforms such as Glamour Magazine, ArtHoeCollective, Billionaire Boys Club, PAUSE magazine, Italian Vogue, Adolescent Content, and in multiple art spaces located in New York. Ohemaa loves to incorporate bright and vibrant color schemes in her work and push the boundaries of the print medium and installation space. She also enjoys experimenting with alternative mediums of photography and print such as silkscreen printing as well as incorporating sculpture in her curations.

 

She has a special interest in art history and specifically the cataloging of art and what is considered "important" in relation to art by POC. She specifically works on discussions on how to avidly include art by POC in the discussion of what is considered "important" in art history dialogues and catalogs. In the past, she worked on a special group curation of Asian Art on Hiroshima at the Everson Art Museum in Syracuse, NY. More recently she was commissioned by Syracuse University to do art research called The Effect of French Republic Mentality on Black Art Collections in France.

 

Art is an important part of Ohemaa’s purpose and as a minority artist, she wants to work to create opportunities for other minority artists to gain recognition and access in the art world through social activism and community outreach and support of avid artists of color. Ohemaa is currently a senior at Syracuse University pursuing a BFA in Art Photography.
