Anthony Akinbola in Monty Hall

Monty Hall is an interactive art piece that invites the public to take their shot at "chance" with the opportunity of selecting from an array of lockers that may or may not hide a treasure inside. 

Presented by CulturalDC, Anthony Akinbola's exhibition features a bank of lockers, each containing a totemic object. Visitors are given a single chance to pick a locker containing a token the artist has placed inside. The artist will replenish the lockers periodically throughout the exhibition.

The presentation tackles the fetishization of objects within ritualistic systems: Akinbola’s stated aim is to “liberate these objects from the narratives that oppress them. I see the show as offering deliverance from ideologies: religion, capitalism, and even art itself.”
