1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair: A solo presentation with Sola Olulode

Somerset House, 13 - 16 October 2022
VIP Preview: 13 October, 11:00 - 18:00. Public Opening: 14 - 16 October, 10:00 - 19:00.
We are delighted to announce our participation in this year's London edition of 1-54, which will take place between 13 - 16 October at Somerset House. The fair is celebrating its 10th anniversary in London and will be hosting 50 international exhibitors across 21 countries, its largest number of countries to date.

Our booth will feature a solo presentation by London based Sola Olulode, whom we have worked with since we launched the gallery in 2020. The concept for this solo booth is centred around Sola's celebrated 'Bed Series', now for the first time coming together. This body of work encompasses who she is in a very poignant way, being a mix of two cultures. The material with which her works are made, and the processes used, are rooted in her Nigerian background, whereas the subject matter is inspired by her life in London. A series which she has often returned to over the past two years, Sola would like to now create an homage to this theme and push the curatorial boundaries of the material and her craftsmanship. The booth will be transformed into an immersive experience, allowing the viewer to engage in a way that hasn't been done before.
