Harold Offeh is an artist working across performance, video, photography, learning and social arts practice.
Offeh is interested in the space created by the inhabiting or embodying of histories. He employs humour as a means to confront the viewer with historical narratives and contemporary culture. In 2020, he completed a PhD by practice exploring the activation of Black Album covers through durational performance.
Offeh has exhibited widely including at Tate Britain and Tate Modern, South London Gallery, Kettle’s Yard, Wysing Art Centre, Studio Museum Harlem, MAC VAL, France, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Denmark and Art Tower Mito, Japan. He lives and works in Cambridge and London. Offeh is a Tutor in Contemporary Art Practice at the Royal College of Art. In 2019, he was a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Artists, the largest award of its kind in the UK.
