      Azikiwe Mohammed: The Tales from Fold Out Chairs and Rashad Wright: in heaven’s wakanda
      Curated by Ysabel Pinyol Blasi
      Presented in partnership with Monira Foundation,
      February 4 to April 2

      The Tales from Fold Out Chairs by Azikiwe Mohammed and in heaven’s wakanda by Rashad Wright are by two contemporary American artists.

      The place where we tell a tale from is as important as the words spoken in it -- as a tale told sitting sits differently in the mouth than one told otherwise. It has more space to rattle before sneaking out. It is rooted in the ground where all of the legs rest upon. Rested words carry more weight, rested words travel farther. And for tales told of unrest, the rested word is the strongest answer. -Ysabel Pinyol Blasi, Curator

Spirited and informal, you will enjoy these intimate conversations and share in looking at examples of these artists' works.
