LAST CHANCE Victor Ekpuk: INTERwoven TEXTures

21 November


The Nigerian-American artist’s solo debut in the Middle East is an exhibition of painting and sculpture that continues his exploration of Nsibidi, an ancient Nigerian graphic communication system.

A tribute to the power of dialogue and collective human experiences, this new body of work – developed during a residency at NYUAD – sees the artist return to the use of wood, a medium that he employed regularly in the 1990s and 2000s while living in Lagos. Also on show: four new metal sculptures and two previously unseen works on canvas.

The pieces are painted with Ekpuk’s own unique language of abstraction, made up of intricate scripture, symbols and mark-making inspired by the pictograms of Nsibidi to confront the heritage and history of the African diaspora as a means of considering its present and its future.
