until 14.10. | #3983ARTatBerlin | Galerie Kremers presents from 15. September 2023 the exhibition TO SPEAK OUT LOUD of the artist Adébayo Bolaji.
The second solo exhibition of the artist Adebayo Bolaji on the occasion of the reopening of the newly designed gallery in the Gothic Hall. In this exhibition, Bolaji, who lives in London and has Nigerian roots, takes the protest action of young Nigerians against police brutality as a starting point to reflect on the power of the voice:
“It was the events in Nigeria that got me thinking about the role of VOICE in society and then the voice of the individual. So what is it that liberates us, that makes us feel like ourselves, which in turn makes us feel free to speak, to express ourselves, to make art … and what is it that hinders us psychologically, politically and socially? -But for me it always goes back to the individual.” Bolaji uses this event as one of the multiple tracks in his search for his own as an intellectual Englishman with Nigerian roots.
The exhibition will take place in both gallery spaces and the artist will be present at the opening.
There will be an artist talk during the exhibition.
Exhibition dates: Friday 15. September until Saturday, 14. October 2023To the Gallery
