The Wheatbaker Hotel is proud to host CROSSROADS, a summer exhibition featuring eleven emerging visual artists, opening on August 6, 2022. Curated by Majid Biggar of SMO Contemporary Art, CROSSROADS celebrates young talent currently navigating the African art scene, demanding space for alternative expressions. 

The exhibition is made up of thirty-three paintings, sculptures, photographs, and mixed-media works by Adeniyi Adewole, Ashiata Shaibu, The Creatus, Boluwatife Lawal, Christopher Samuel Idowu, Kevwe Eru, David Ibukun Oniyide, Francis Nwajiaku Uche, Odia Odibo, Ikenna Obinka, and Victor Sonoiki.

Each artist delves into themes which explore our culture, personal freedom, mental health and identity within a pressurized and over-populated urban landscape, bringing youth to often feel at “crossroads” in their lives. The works delve into the mindscapes of young talent as they grapple with critical decisions in the midst of tense socio-economic global and local realities which have a pivotal impact on their futures.

The artists range in age from 20 to 29, speaking out  for their generation by creating works which show a deep awareness and sensibilisation regarding diverse issues and challenges.
