Artist Akinola Davies Jr. Presents "HOD" Exhibition

Seoul-based art platform sketchedSPACE is hosting the first solo exhibition of Nigerian moving artist Akinola Davies Jr. at Dupont Underground in Washington D.C. Named after the artist’s film made for the exhibit, “HOD” sheds light on displaced African artifacts across Western Europe. Mainly, Davies aims to highlight the “impact their radiant energies have both on the spaces they have been removed from as well as the spaces they now inhabit.”

Davies’ works touch upon themes of race, identity, gender, community, and conclusion, as per sketchedSPACE. “Hod” is running at Dupont Underground until October 20.
