It’s been almost a year since Tiwani Contemporary opened its doors just off Oxford Street, and the gallery has really made its mark in London with a great series of exhibitions and events bringing some of Nigeria’s most exciting artists to the UK.
The gallery also presents work by artists from Africa, the African diaspora and the Global South more widely. Their latest show comes from Nathalie Mba Bikoro, a French-Gabonese interdisciplinary artist who draws on her own multiple spaces of belonging in both Gabon and Europe to address and re-imagine the histories, myths and memories that shape identity. In this, her first solo show in London, Bikoro employs photo etching, installation and performance to create a new interpretation of a well-known story: The Middle Passage: Alice in Wonderland.
The exhibition is presented in association with Ed Cross Fine Art. You can find out more about Bikoro’s work on their website.
Show: 9th Nov – 15 Dec
Private view with live performance by the artist: 8th Nov, 6.30-8.30
Opening hours: Wed-Fri 11-6, Sat 12-5, Mon-Tues by appointment
