No Prisoners, Only Trophies

Girls Run The World

2022-09-30T12:21:00+02:00

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.

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.

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.
