As the world attempts to return to normality, many are looking forward to enjoying the pleasures of life that they have been denied for months on end, especially when it comes to art exhibitions. Well, should you be on the hunt for a culture fix, look no further than Adora Mba’s collaborative exhibition with HOFA Gallery.
Wildly important in premise, the Mba-curated exhibition is an ode to the sheer talent of black female artists. Having picked 18 globally-renowned artists to put on displays of culturally rich art pieces, visitors of the exhibit can head down to the London-based gallery – in the centre of what Mba claims to be the next “art capital” – between July 22 and August 31 to indulge in the curator’s hand-picked art pieces. With creations such as Marcellina Akpojotor’s “Set to Flourish II” and Sophia Oshodin’s “While We Wait” providing vibrant displays set to delight the senses and satisfy the nation’s craving for culture, it is quickly becoming known as the event of the summer.
When speaking on her collaboration, the curator candidly stated, “I’ve never really had that international push for space or visual platform for anyone to see the art. I don’t know that everybody is going to jump on this incredible gathering and want to work with every single one of these artists. But, I really hope they see that it’s important. I think underestimating us is always going to be a thing.”
And, while this particular collaboration is ground-breaking in nature, this is not the first time HOFA Gallery has joined forces with seasoned talents. The work of Mba joins four other exhibitions that fall under the gallery’s CURATED initiative, which holds a focus on spotlighting the visions of young curators across from around the world.
And, furthering the anticipation surrounding rising talents within the art sphere, Mba went on to state, “I’m doing a show in Athens, and I can finish it in September/October. But I actually think this is really great. I kind of hope this is a new strategy for galleries and stuff. I think it’s wonderful having more international and bigger galleries partnering with younger guys.”
