We are delighted to announce that Tyburn Gallery in London is presenting Òkhùo, a solo exhibition by Taiye Idahor.
Òkhùo, Taiye Idahor’s first UK solo exhibition, is a reflection on women and power in society, including mixed media works by the Lagos-based artist.
Born and based in Lagos, Nigeria, Idahor traces her heritage to the ancient empire of Benin City, whose history and iconography she references in her practice. Working within media as diverse as sculpture, collage, drawing, and installation, she explores layers of themes which are simultaneously universal and intimate, expressing female and African identity within the broader contexts of history, tradition and globalisation.

Private view: Thursday 8 February, 6.00-8:30pm, with an artist’s talk from 6.00-6:30pm.
The exhibition continues until 9 May 2018.
