Rele Gallery is pleased to present Poetics of Material, a group exhibition of works from contemporary African and diasporic artists, opening across the gallery’s spaces in Lagos, Nigeria and Los Angeles, California. Running from November 5th, 2022 to December 17th, 2022, the exhibition imagines the natural and manufactured object as an unconscious archive of a constantly evolving society capable of storing memory and producing new narratives. Inviting artists whose work explores the physical and textural qualities of material, it examines the transformation of form and object; as both an inquiry into design aesthetics and an engagement with social history and contemporary life.
