Here is some mid-week news to brighten up your day!
Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner is a collective exhibition currently viewable at the Richard Taittinger gallery in New York City. The work – compiled by a dozen African artists – explores the “Burden of ‘Africaness’” in a thought provoking series.
Curated by Ugochukwu-Smooth C. Nzewi, the show aims to address notions of exclusions and respectability within the mainstream art scene as commented upon by Niegrian art historian Chika Okeke-Agulu‘s, who claimed: ““folks can’t seem to come to terms with the fact that African artists have now taken and secured their seat at the dinner table, invited or not!”
The exhibition will be running until the 22nd August, so if you’re in or around NYC between now and then, be sure to take some time to check it out! More information available here.
