Mizhin Gbagyi Zanu (I Am Gbagyi) is a Gbagyi Tribe inspired Photography and and Ceramic Art exhibition which merges the traditional and contemporary cultures of Abuja, FCT. The exhibition features an editorial shoot of a group of Abuja youth, both of Gbayi and migrant backgrounds. The key concept is the use of the traditional Gbagyi fabric to create the backdrop and high fashion contemporary pieces worn by the youth. The fabric is decorated with tribal imagery of the calabash shouldering mother and the popular Gbagyi saying, " Mizhin Gbagyi Zanu (I Am Gbagyi)". Another feature is the infusion of Native Intelligence to enhance a contemporary scene with the use of clay pottery and ceramic art to create the editorial set.

Portraits of the artist’s family members Roadside communities are routinely neglected. Many of these communities originate from native peoples who have not had their territories demarcated. Cucurunã is one of these communities and is located between Santarém and Alter do Chão in western Pará,a region called "Eixo Forte", in the lower Amazon. The Museu da Silva arises from the ideal of building a narrative based on the memories of the artist's own relatives who tell a centenary history of building a Tapajowara community, which brings within it an important indigenous identity that has been erased or subdued by the colonization processes throughout Brazilian history.

The Horse is the Rising: Monument to Osala and to workers

Yhuri Cruz

Public performance and installation, 2019 Left: Vertical photo: 1m50 wide / 3m high Right: 3 horizontal photos: 420 × 594cm The Horse is the Rising (Monument to Osala and to workers) is a public art installation inspired by the artist’s poem 'I ride in marble fields’, from 2018. Taking the horse as a multicultural code within Brazilian and African-brazilian culture, the artist seeks to draw parallels between (1) the horses present in colonial and post-colonial monuments and their signifiers, (2) the flags that these monuments bring and their ideological conceptions, and (3) the horse as a representation of the human being that embodies (receives and allows oneself be ridden by) entities and deities within religions of African and Afro-Brazilian origin. The entities discussed here are Osala and the worker himself / herself, who, in this project, is recognized as an entity (spiritual agent) of the social space. The work consists of the Diaspora performance, the construction of the monument and the distribution of hominy at the end of the process.

I AM GBAGYI

Mambaah Cafe/Creative Hub (Abuja, Nigeria)

About Exhibition: Mizhin Gbagyi Zanu (I Am Gbagyi) is a Gbagyi Tribe inspired Photography and and Ceramic Art exhibition which merges the traditional and contemporary cultures of Abuja, FCT. The exhibition features an editorial shoot of a group of Abuja youth, both of Gbayi and migrant backgrounds.  The key concept is the use of the traditional Gbagyi fabric to create the backdrop and high fashion contemporary pieces worn by the youth. The fabric is decorated with tribal imagery of the calabash shouldering mother and the popular Gbagyi saying, " Mizhin Gbagyi Zanu (I Am Gbagyi)".  Another feature is the infusion of Native Intelligence to enhance a contemporary scene with  the use of clay pottery and ceramic art to create the editorial set.  As you journey through the I Am Gbagyi Exhibition you will enjoy imagery of Gbagyi Symbolism with a modern twist as artistically translated by Zainab Akwanga of Mambaah Cafe & Creative Hub, Abuja.  1 Mother:  The working mother carrying a calabash of firewood on her shoulder with her child playing in the background ( traditionally the child is carried on her mother's back).  2) Diversification: The Female farmer with her corn and motar symbolising the Gbagyi tribe's dedication to Agriculture.The Nigerian Government has recently showed a great interest in the diversification of the economy by reviving agricultural activities which the Gbagyis have never abandoned.  3) Earthy Dining and Fired Warrior: Featuring the Clay pottery and Ceramic Art of laterns, huts, figurines, which traditionally were used by the Gbagyis for daily home life, but have currently become fashionable decor accessories used in the most beautiful contemporary homes and gardens.  4) The Tribe of the Red Soil: Features of the Tribe, a combination of Gbagyi Royals and the working population showing the Gbagyi tribe's beautiful union and openness to all classes of the thier communities. The Gbagyi is a tribe so  welcoming that they welcomed all Nigerians to their home territory giving us the Red Soil City, Abuja, FCT as Nigeria's capital city.

Before the Uncivilized Title B

Laura Burocco (Italy)

Artists: Denilson Baniwa, Moara Brasil, Pedro Victor Brandão, Yhuri Cruz & Odaraya Mello About Exhibition: This exhibition contemplates the current debate of the decolonization of museums and the recovering of silenced histories. It opens with a performance by Denilson Baniwa at the 33 Biennial of SP. The indigenous artist creates a personal and powerful response to a questionable curatorial work presented by a white artist who was part of the biennial. The critique does not end here but expands creatively into the work produced by Moara Brasil, another indigenous artist, who questions identity by attempting to redeem her ancestrality through a journey into her family memories. Both the artworks of black artist Yuri Cruz and Odaraya Mello deal with their reality as Africans in diaspora and bring references to Afro-Brazilian religions. Cruz presents ‘A monument to Oxalá', an Afro-descendant entity for the Brazilian Candomblé. This recalls the idea of western monument and its resignification by the Afro-descendant Brazilian artist. Mello’s work shows the measurement of a time that leads to continuation and thus links to a journey of belonging to religious cults of African origin. These artworks by Brazilian indigenous and black artists dialogue with the photographic work of the white artist Pedro Victor Brandão that questions the supposed civilization, the value of money and theft. Brandão's series references the capitalist system on which Western civilization is built upon, the illegality and disrespect that are implicit in this system. About Curator: LB lives and works between Brasil, South Africa and Italy. She works in teaching, research, critic, and curatorial in the areas of urban and cultural studies, within an Afro-centric decolonial theoretical approach.

Before the Uncivilized Title B

The Paradise carries its Package

IKO-Art Gallery (Vienna, Austria)

Artists: Anna Francesca, Egor Urakov, Martin Sommer & Hanna Besenhard Curator: Esther Vorosmarty 3d Design: Hanna Besenhard Production: Roberta Manganelli (Link to exhibition) About Exhibition: Within all its weight and lightness, water implies conflicts of a social and personal nature and manifests fragile constructs of society. Adaptation expresses through the power of gestures between language, text, body and space. A delusion of finding oneself in a sound space to escape the illusions of society. Striving and longing for a place, an encounter, a dialogue, a solution, an answer to countless questions. Disorientation and confusion of the senses, represented in their restless repetition. Eurocentrism is a distortion of the world view, underlying most social theories and ideologies and is based on global relations of domination and suppression. Eurocentric radical thinking and acting is connected with a presumption of superiority that negates or disparages other ways of thinking and philosophies. By ignoring or undervaluing non-European societies as inferior to Western, Eurocentrism also caused the effect that other societies all over the world have the presumption that Western societies feel superior and privileged. Historiography constructs Europe as an alternative to the rest of the world and Eurocentrism is still a problem of the present and the future. A crucial change of our civilization and a sustainable solution of bias can only be achieved globally. About Gallery: IKO-ART, founded by Erekle Tsintsadze, focuses on promotion and support of national and international artists in fields of services such as authentication (artwork appraisal services) and productional know-how (materials, transports and storage).
