Check-out this exhibition by Nigerian artist Toyin Odutola in the Chelsea Art Gallery Jack Shainman. It is for free and still running until the 29th of June. After seeing the contemporary exhibition at MoMA, where a red painted square or a hoover in a glass box are considered art, it was nice to see Odutola’s paintings.
“My Country Has No Name” is an “exploration of identity rooted in the friction created by hyphenated nationalities and a study into what comes from a reconciliation of seemingly distant and divergent cultural homes to form a new multilayered reality.”
Got it? ;-) I liked it a lot. Go see!
