  • Standing Out showcases the art of eleven leading and emerging female artists whose work reflects a multitude of issues surrounding feminism and equality, through a variety of media including painting, photography, print, sculpture, clay, glass, weaving, mixed media and performance. What echoes through all the works is energy, resilience, interconnections and overlapping memories and identities, with rich visual metaphors of breaking boundaries across psychological, physical and emotional landscapes.

    We applaud our phenomenal artists, Tyna Adebowale, Ranti Bamgbala, TY Bello, Carey Godwin, Taiye Idahor, Wura-Natasha Ogunji, Zemaye Okediji, Obiageli Okigbo, Nnenna Okore, Nike Davies-Okundaye, and Karin Troy who are quintessentially standing out and whose art is distinctly out standing!
