Dates: 12 September – 7 November 2020
Location: Summertime Gallery, 145 Ainslie Street, Brooklyn, New York, USA
Nnena Kalu will be exhibiting a series of ‘vortex’ drawings in the group exhibition Fair Vanity at Summer Time Gallery, New York. Curated by guest curator Lisa Slominski, Fair Vanity explores the personal as political through seven distinct, international practices. The circumstances of 2020 urge us to investigate creative production relating to identity. From sheltering in place to nationwide protests, identity in our current contemporary culture has become both physical and virtual, as well as personal and communal.
Exhibiting artists are Emily Dober (Arts Project Australia), Lee Godie, Zina Hall (Creative Growth), Nnena Kalu (ActionSpace), Yvette Mayorga, Cherelle Sappleton and Emma Summerton. The artists represent unique perspectives – ranging in arts education, age, culture and neurodiversity.
Fair Vanity will be presenting an engaging and accessible online program to coincide with the exhibition. This will include an online viewing room and a weekly focus on each exhibiting artist,
