It has been a while since our first episode with artist Germain Ngoma and curator Drew Snyder in 2020. It was all unknown for Germain’s solo exhibition at Tenthaus in November 2021, and his book release.
In episode 74, we are going to unfold how Germain’s project at Tenthaus developed. What went into making the new book looking back at Germain’s long career? What threads were left unraveled? Artist, writer, and editor
We are excited to have Billie McTernan joining Germain Ngoma live on Radio Tenthaus together with Drew Synder for a lively chat on Germain Ngoma’s life, work, and music. Expect great music picked by Germain, Billie, and Omon themselves.

GERMAIN NGOMA Germain Ngoma has exhibited widely and continues an experimental practice in many different media. His contribution to the Norwegian art scene is far beyond his exhibition activities. He is considered
teacher and mentor to many students that have passed through the Academy of Art in Oslo. Ngoma was instrumental in establishing Norad funded workshops that have resulted in Zambian MA students studying in
Oslo and establishing a strong European cultural network.
Billie McTernan is a writer, artist and editor whose practice considers ways of expanding the possibilities of writing by experimenting with form. She is completing an MFA at the Department of Painting and Sculpture at KNUST in Kumasi, Ghana. This project space is dedicated to her studio practice and experiments.
DREW SNYDER is a curator and art historian and has been Programme Manager at OCA since August 2018. He holds a PhD in modern/contemporary art history, theory, and criticism from the Visual Arts Department at the University of California, San Diego under the supervision of Grant Kester and Norman Bryson. His dissertation reconsidered the development of postwar visual culture, public discourse, and the avant-garde in the U.S. in the context of geopolitics and nuclear culture. He has a broad set of research interests across the arts which include questions of historical narrative, political ecology, discourses of life, and new forms of international exchange.
