AKIRASH: A S H I R I
|+ Add opportunity|
Olaniyi R. Akindiya (Akirash) is an interdisciplinary artist, born in Lagos, Nigeria, who has lived in the Republic of Benin, Accra, Ghana, and traveled extensively to participate in seminars, biennales, artist residency programs, workshops, group and solo exhibitions. The theme of this show, ASHIRI, means SECRET which references our use of clothes to hide those parts of our bodies we wish to keep secret. In these tapestries, Akirash highlights the skills necessary to take raw cotton, spin it into threads, and then weave them together to form these unique traditional cloths.
The Museum of Human Achievement is excited to feature Akirash’s recent works in the form of a full gallery installation.
