Gallery 1957 participate in Art Dubai: Modupeola Fadugba

21 – 24 March 2018

Gallery 1957 participate for the first time at Art Dubai, Madinat Jumeirah from 21 - 24 March 2018. The gallery presents a solo booth from Togolese artist Modupeola Fadugba, who will hold a solo exhibition at Gallery 1957, Accra in August 2018.

Modupeola Fadugba’s (b. 1985) work employs painting, drawing, and socially-engaged installation, addressing subjects of cultural identity, social justice and ‘game theory’ within the socio-political landscape of Nigeria (where she now lives and works).With a background in engineering, economics, and education, her works intersect the fields of science, politics, and art.

For her solo booth at Art Dubai, Fadugba presents seven new works, alongside a video installation from her series Synchronized Swimmers (2016-7). In this series, Fadugba explores the themes of risk, agency, and chance through depictions of female bodies in a swimming pool. Acting as a metaphor for the art world, Fadugba comments that the pool “represents luxury and risk simultaneously”.
