Founded in 2011 in London by Maria Varnava, Tiwani Contemporary exhibits and represents international contemporary artists, focussing on Africa and its diaspora.

Since its establishment, the gallery continues to showcase new and established talent – mounting landmark and critically-acclaimed exhibitions in a series of firsts. Artists such as Njideka Akunyili-Crosby, Emeka Ogboh, Simone Leigh and Kapwani Kiwanga showed at Tiwani Contemporary in the early stages of their careers. 

In late 2021, the gallery celebrated its 10th anniversary.
