There’s a new kid on the block: Tiwani Contemporary, which opened a few weeks ago just off Oxford Street, is a new commercial gallery specialising in work by contemporary artists based in Nigeria. The gallery has wide ambitions, aiming to engage with diaspora artists and forge connections with the Global South, as well as present a varied public programme involving projects with other collaborators. Its partnership with the dynamic Centre for Contemporary Arts, Lagos (CCA, Lagos) will no doubt help in this respect, and I’m looking forward to seeing the gallery bring some great Nigerian artists and their work to new audiences.
The Tiwani website is at present a little cryptic: it looks as though a group show kicked things off this week, but there’s no further info, so keep an eye on the website or perhaps give them a call on +44 (0) 20 7631 3808.
