Hard and Soft Contrasts: Textiles, Fiber and Sculpture at The Yard


Curated by Atim Annette Oton, Calabar Gallery


January 26, 2023 to April 17, 2023


This exhibition is about materiality, breaking traditions and narratives and will include sculpture, textile and fiber works from 14 local, regional and international artists. Work shown explores how the choice and use of materials extend the artist’s imagination, use of color and subject matter. From steel to wood to fiber, each artist experiments with their work from idea, concept, theme and context to create a unique piece of art.

Artists include Janet Goldner, Eto Otitigbe, P. Wamaitha Ng’ang’a, Gianluca Bianchino, Oluwaseyi Awoyomi (Shayee), Alexandre Kyungu, Irene Christensen Nnenna Okore, Akilu Temesgen, Lisa Lackey, Kwesi Kwarteng, Sika Foyer, Faustin Adenarin, Ghislaine Sabati and Winfred Nana Amoah
