Toyin Ojih Odutola: New Work

Best known for drawings that use distinctively layered mark-making to highlight topographies of skin and surface, Toyin Ojih Odutola is a storyteller who often presents her work in sprawling narrative cycles. For her New Work exhibition, Ojih Odutola takes inspiration from the speculative fiction of Octavia E. Butler and the poetry of Dionne Brand to explore a future haunted by the human-driven environmental changes that characterize this geological age of the Anthropocene. Titled Satellite, this body of work debuts twenty-one new pastel, charcoal, and graphite compositions in an immersive environment layered with the sights and sounds of everyday life in a mutated world of our own making. Set in the year 2050 in Eko -- the traditional Yoruba name for today's Lagos, Nigeria -- Satellite invites us to explore the contours of African and other global futures and the new configurations of home, community, and knowledge that may emerge.
