Filling all three galleries, the Central Space, Reading Room and Garden, this exhibition draws together over 70 artists from around the world spanning this century and the last, including 19th century textiles made by unknown hands. Individually, each work has a story to tell; collectively, they begin a conversation in which visual, narrative and thematic relationships unfold. This eclectic collage of works, some of which have strong political undercurrents, addresses issues surrounding cultural identity, sexuality and the representation of the body. Olowu’s exhibition invites a multifaceted journey of encounters with the intuition, skill and vision of the artists represented within it.
Watch a recording of the exhibition Introductory Talk with Duro Olowu and Thelma Golden here.
Making & Unmaking is accompanied by a series of talks and events featuring some of the exhibiting artists together with writers, musicians and Duro Olowu, which will address themes central to the exhibition. Find out more here.
