Final Hood Downtown Exhibition Features Toyin Ojih Odutola’s Drawings

From the Hood Museum of Art: Toyin Ojih Odutola poses questions with her drawings. She asks her viewers to consider how conceptions of race are established and promulgated. She demonstrates how those very conceptions can and do shape experience. Her work is elaborate, provocative, poetic, and charged—revealing the details of people’s lives while only alluding to their lived experience. Ultimately, Ojih Odutola’s Firmament reminds us both of “what could have been” and “what should be”—a world where difference, individualism, compassion, and civility are the norm and not distant ideals. The Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth, presents Toyin Ojih Odutola: The Firmament in the Hood Downtown exhibition space from June 8 through September 2, 2018.
