Iconic Nigerian-Canadian creative director Josef Adamu is returning to Toronto to premiere his solo exhibition Feels like home at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

The exhibition will be highlighting work from three series: The Hair Appointment (2018), Ten Toes Down (2021) and Jump Ball (2019–ongoing) which all consider contemporary discourses around the notion of home. Each of these projects speaks to the unique and vibrant reflections of Black identities, while further planting roots beyond online spaces.

Featuring the works produced by Adamu and his creative agency, Sunday School, this upcoming exhibit is a homecoming of sorts marking the agency's sixth anniversary and first major exhibition in Toronto.

Sunday School was founded by Adamu in 2017  in the basement of his Toronto home with the goal of providing new and exciting viewpoints through digital content and immersive brand experiences.
