Nnena Kalu invited to exhibit at the Royal Academy of Arts’ Summer Exhibiton 2021


Summer Exhibition 2021 at Royal Academy of Arts
22 September 2021 – 2 January 2022

ActionSpace artist Nnena Kalu has been invited by the Summer Exhibition co-ordinator, Yinka Shonibare, to exhibit at the Royal Academy of Arts’ Summer Exhibition 2021. Nnena has created an exciting new series of sculptures specifically for the exhibition, binding colour and layering materials to create raw and intense forms that echo Nnena’s passion and drive to create.

This year’s Summer Exhibition explores the theme of ‘Reclaiming Magic’ to celebrate the joy of creating art. Shonibare said “This exhibition seeks a return to the visceral aspects and the sheer joy of art making. It will celebrate the transformative powers of the magical in art and transcend the Western canon which formed the foundations of the Royal Academy, seeking to restore value to marginalised practices as equally valid forms of enlightenment.”
