    About

    This intimate exhibition presents four new paintings by Nigerian-born, Los Angeles-based artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby.


    Known for her signature photo-transfer technique using images sourced from her native Nigeria and life in the U.S., Akunyili Crosby’s artistic practice embraces her experiences as a Black woman and immigrant negotiating two cultures.


    For these four paintings, Akunyili Crosby shifts her past focus on domestic interiors to exterior spaces—and plant life, exploring cultural hybridity through species found in Los Angeles and Lagos, Nigeria, occasionally merging the two to imagine new “cosmopolitan plants.”
