Camden Arts Centre – June 19, 2016 – September 18, 2016

Making & Unmaking, curated by fashion designer and curator Duro Olowu, is the latest artist-selected exhibition at London’s Camden Arts Centre. Infusing together over 70 international artists, including Polly Apfelbaum and Hurvin Anderson, the show places traditional African textiles and Bauhaus tapestries along with contemporary works and new commissions.

The eclectic collage of works addresses themes that include cultural identity, representations of beauty, gender, sexuality, innocence, and the body. Olowu worked to create a sense of “artist hand,” where everything looks deeply handmade and not in any way mass produced. This exhibition was created with a desire to create harmony and diversity, and as a result, the works came together organically, much like Olowu’s fashion collections.
