Towards the Light

November 3, 2020

Towards The Light is a solo exhibition of recent works by painter-philosopher Ibe Ananaba, which brings solace at a time of emotional and political fatigue as we near the end of a very challenging year. While the constraints on our lives in the midst of the corona pandemic are not relenting, and we sustain our support for Nigeria’s inspiring youth movement calling for good governance and an end to police brutality. Ananaba’s works remind us to continue to tap into the power of community, and the hope, vitality and pure creative energy of our visionary, impatient youth.

An exhibition of paintings and drawings, Towards the Light is grounded in an avant-garde musical track, which encapsulates the rhythm of a generation seeking answers to fundamental questions about identity and equality, democracy, racism and the right to choose who leads us.
