Collection: Headlines Gallery

September 2 – October 31, 2021

Inside Oluwatobi Adewumi’s cultural milieu the male artist bestows ultimate respect to womanhood by depicting her power to create, nurture, protect, and reflect Black life in the diaspora

Headlines is a solo exhibition of twenty-two works by Adewumi that depict the attributes of Black womanhood as it persists against vilification and harm. Much of Western society’s effort to be superior occurs through destruction rather than by its own improvement. How effective are these marked attempts to recast Black womanhood? What attributes are reflected in these personas that reveal residual harm by the Western lineage? Does culture persist?

Headlines is Oluwatobi Adewumi’s tribute to the complexity of the Black woman as culture bearer.
