Making & Unmaking, curated by celebrated fashion designer and curator Duro Olowu, is the latest in our series of artist-selected shows. Bringing together over sixty international artists working in diverse media, this exhibition places antique West African textiles and Bauhaus tapestries amongst contemporary works and new commissions. Individually, the works address themes that include portraiture as well as representations of beauty, gender, sexuality, innocence and the body. Collectively, their coming together reveals a common thread that Olowu describes as a ‘process of personal ritual experienced by artists in creating their work’.
