Details: Referencing existing textile pedagogies, the exhibition showcases the works of artists whose practices are informed by African textiles and cultural memory, such as El Anatsui, Malene Barnett, Layo Bright, Celeste Butler, Sanaa Gateja, Enam Gbewonyo, Eddy Kamuanga Ilunga, Seydou Keita, Ron Norsworthy, Nnenna Okore, Patrick Quarm, Latrelle Rostant, and Yinka Shonibare. Centering the social, cultural, and political histories of textiles, it encourages the viewer to look beyond the aesthetic qualities and delve deeper into the agency of materials. The collective works of the featured artists create a space where the past and the present coalesce, providing a lens through which the viewer can discover, question, process, heal, and find self. It is this recontextualization of ideas that will lead to an emergence of discourse that is not only separate from canon but specific to African cultural and historical heritage as it continues to evolve. In addition, this reframing has the potential to spark a movement that re-examines the broader contextual understanding of materiality across different cultures.
