Politics of Representation

A Solo Exhibition by Oliver Enwonwu
September 20, 2021
Through OLIVER Enwonwu's strong figurative style, Politics of RepresentatioN interrogates the complex layers of history connecting the African continent with the West. His powerful portraiture celebrates  the cultural, political, and socio-economic achievements of Africans and how these have affected the identity of the global black race.  The exhibition contains works from Enwonwu's  'Body of Power', 'Signares', 'Belle of Senegal', and 'Wanderers' series, which explore the effects of migration, eventually "dissolving boundaries and our notions of time and space."
