Hard & Soft Contrasts: Textiles, Fiber & Sculpture

Opening on January 26, from 5:30-7:30, 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

Curated by Atim Annette Oton, the director of Calabar Gallery. The Gallery represents and exhibits underserved artists locally and globally: African, African American and Caribbean artists, with the mission of providing a place for community, exhibition, creative initiatives and projects.
