Chulumanco “There’s nothing quite as valuable as family for those lucky enough to have one”. “It’s the stick-together family that wins the joys of earth, That hears the sweetest music and that finds the finest mirth; It’s the old home roof that shelters all the charm that life can give; There you find the gladdest play-ground, there the happiest spot to live”.

Crazy Little Thing Called Love: Nedia Were Solo

2023-02-14T08:40:28+02:00

Crazy Little Thing Called Love: Nedia Were Solo When Nedia Were considers ‘love, connections and relationships’ as ‘the most important aspect in human life’, he is tapping our core longing in a time that has become brutally divisive, hurtful and hateful, in which reason has been vanquished, intuition obliterated, the only call heeded by the majority, trapped in their respective silos, one that

Girls Run The World

Our intentions, as a gallery and as a team, have always been to provide a platform that highlights and celebrates the narratives of and from the African continent and so, by hosting a group exhibition in August each year, our focus turns towards sharing the stories of woman and non-binary artists. This means turning towards conversations around the impact of gender, its definitions, and the constraints that shape and reflect society at large.

Everybody is looking at us

2022-06-20T10:55:22+02:00

At no point in the history of painting has the black body been so exalted, fetishized, or scrutinised. I believed the matter to be one driven by colonial guilt, the attrition of white mythological power, and, in lieu of a more hybrid and global grasp of humanity, the need for revisionism. This greater inclusivity is certainly the case, but so is the ongoing commodification

Tones – Online Group Show

2020-08-06T14:28:38+02:00

Tones brings together ideas that have germinated, growing silently and carefully, over the past few months. Since the beginning of 2020, or perhaps long before, the world has been in various states of flux, requiring a change of pace, a different dynamic and altered means of interaction. Thus, as we shift in tone to new possibilities, acknowledging the tensions and sounds of strain, and

Elsewhere - Hussein Salim Hussein Salim is no stranger to travel, finding new environments, adapting to new living spaces.

Before Tomorrow Comes | Onyis Martin

Borders are critical and complex entities, concepts and constructs. Many artists have engaged with notions of permeability, transience and constraints in relation to borders but few have dealt with the impressions of borders and their bureaucratic ephemera as tangibly as Onyis Martin. Before Tomorrow Comes is a presentation of his latest body of work, as a solo exhibition at a Eclectica
