Curated by Kehinde Wiley to benefit Black Rock Senegal
at Jeffrey Deitch Los Angeles, November 6-December 23, 2021
This set of 30 postcards features a selection of artworks from the exhibition “Self-Addressed,” curated by Kehinde Wiley. For this landmark exhibition, Wiley invited contemporary African artists living throughout the world to each produce a self-portrait. Together these portraits present a new exploration of identity, perception, and self-regard within the global stage through the lens of figuration, exploring notions of perspective, authorship and control within acts of expression that directly address the self. Together, these portraits offer an examination of the myth of the monolithic ‘Africa’ and an exploration of contemporary artists’ visual definitions of what it means to be ‘African’ or ‘of Africa.’
Featured artists include: Adeji Tawiah, Barthelemy Toguo, Chukwudubem Busayo Ukaigwe, Collins Obijaku, Ekene Emeka-Maduka, Eniwaye Oluwaseyi, Félicité Codjo, Gael Maski, Harold Offeh, Jerry Quarshie, Juwon Aderemi, Lindokuhle Khumalo, Mbali Dhlamini, Moussa Traoré, Mwangi Hutter, Ngimbi Bakambana, Nonzuzo Gxekwa, Oluwole Omofemi, Omar Ba, Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe, Salifou Lindou, Shabu Mwangi, Stacey Gillian Abe, Temitayo Ogunbiyi, Teresa Kutala Firmino, Tosin Kalejaye, Tyna Adebowale, Victor Ubah and Yagazie Emezi.
