Abe Odedina in Hyperallergic

'Giving Space to Black Women at 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair'
“What I see are just amazing humans,” said Odedina as he told me stories about strong female figures in his life, including his late mother, who recently passed at the age of 97.”

London-based painter Abe Odedina's presentation with Diane Rosenstein Gallery at 1-54 NY is featured in the Hyperallergic story “Giving Space to Black Women at 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair” by ET Rodriguez.

“Throughout the fair, the most pervasive style of work was portraiture. Viewers are not only confronted with the presence and gaze of Black women, but encouraged to try to understand their fraught histories, how that affects their sense of self, and how society perceives them.”
