Past Exhibition Information

May 10, 2023 - June 3, 2023

Gallery 6


Tiwani Contemporary

A group exhibition featuring female artists Charmaine Watkiss (UK), Delita Martin (US) and Tessa Mars (Haiti).

At the core of each artist's practice is their engagement with drawing - in its original expression and then its prospection into other forms: painting, printmaking and caste sculpture. 
Watkiss, Martin and Mars are artists creating bodies of work that centre and situate real or fictional protagonists, specifically black women, whose presence activates a short or recurring pictorial narrative for prolonged reflection.
