Anthony Akinbola

Local Import

MAD 2019 Artist Fellow Anthony Akinbola’s layered and multifaceted compositions celebrate and reconcile the cultures that compose his identity as a first-generation American of Nigerian origin.  Local Import continues Akinbola’s exploration of the use of durags—fiber scarves used in the maintenance of black hair—as both a material for art-making and a commentary on larger issues of identity, respectability, and commodification of African American culture. On view through June 28 in the Project Space on the sixth floor.
