Okon, Ima-Abasi (2018) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^. [Show/Exhibition]

Type of Research: Show/Exhibition
Creators: Okon, Ima-Abasi

A new commissioned body of work for the group exhibition ' there’s something in the conversation that is more interesting than the finality of (a title)'. Work also included by artists Adam Farah, Onyeka Igwe, Jamila Johnson-Small, Jade Montserrat, Ima-Abasi Okon, Raju Rage, Daniella Valz Gen and Alberta Whittle.

The exhibition has grown out of a year-long exchange between the eight artists selected to participate in the artist associates programme Holding Space, which convened at The Showroom during 2017. Taking the conversation beyond this framework into the space of an exhibition, there’s something in the conversation that is more interesting than the finality of (a title) seeks to articulate and embody some of the common areas of concern emerging from the artists’ shared dialogues and individual processes of research. Integral to this is a continuing reflection on how artists and institutions relate to one another.
