Mendi and Keith Obadike are sound artists who work at the intersection of art, music, and literature. They have exhibited and performed at the New Museum, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art. Their early works include a series of internet artworks that have been widely exhibited and anthologized by major museums and new media art institutions. Their later projects include a series of large-scale, public sound artworks: Blues Speaker (for James Baldwin)—a 12 hour, 24 channel musical work—at the New School and Free/Phase at the Chicago Cultural Center & Rebuild Foundation, among others.
