I first experienced the work of Njideka Akunyili Crosby at Artbasel in 2015….I loved it instantly and could afford it ironically, but sadly I waited …..and that was a big mistake. I am not sure what came over me as restraint and sensibility are not my typical reflex. I posted earlier about the opening of the Whitney and attached a photo from a billboard commission for the Whitney museum in 2015/2016 entitled “Mama, mummy and mamma”, one of my favourites. CAN U PUT A LINK TO THE EARLIER POST HERE?
I saw this piece in Venice, Njideka was selected, along with Vancouver’s Stan Douglas, to show in an exhibition at the Biennale.
