MUST-SEE EXHIBITION: Six Draughtsmen @ MoCADA, Brooklyn, NY | runs until 19 January 2014
Six Draughtsmen highlights the drawing practices of six artists: Wura-Natasha Ogunji, Toyin Odutola, Temitayo Ogunbiyi, Nnenna Okore, Odun Orimolade and Ruby Onyinyechi Amanze (the exhibition curator).
Most of these artists have roots or affiliation with Nigeria, while also working in the U.S.. Although drawing is the practice that’s foregrounded in this exhibition, many of these women are also as installation artists, performance artists, mixed media artists and sculptors alongside drawing. All are interested in “taking mark-making, line, erasure / transparency, memory and process, off the page and into three dimensional space.” Head to MoCADA to see the diverse ways these artists rethink the medium.
