This April, Agora Gallery welcomes three exhibitions that explore the current state of the world by investigating the different voices coming from every corner of the globe and hearing what they have to say. In East Meets West, we take a look at the work that is coming from Asian nations. Though the works vary greatly in influence and aesthetic, they allow the viewer into a cultural immersion without ever leaving their backyard. In Forms and Formalities, we see the visions, observations, and inner dreams of artists from all walks of life. Agora Gallery also presents the solo exhibition of Nigerian artist Nonye Ikegwuoha, a world-traveled architect who has recently turned his vision towards the “dark, harrowing experiences of migrants.” His portraits uncover the death, disease, and displacement that these people have faced, using cubist techniques, earthen colors, and fascinating lines and forms.
The exhibitions open on April 1st, 2016 and runs until April 21st, 2016. The opening reception for all three will take place on the evening of Thursday, April 7, 2016. Entrance is free.
