Njideka Akunyili Crosby: Predecessors

Edited by Ian Berry and Steven Matijcio. Interview by Ian Berry. Essays by Malik Gaines and Steven Matijcio

Njideka Akunyili Crosby: Predecessors unites works from the artist’s Predecessors series. Investigating the confluences, contact zones, and third spaces of culture, Akunyili Crosby represents the people and places closest to her: the women of her family, her partner, the interiors of her grandmother’s home and her own. Even in the midst of such personal themes, Akunyili Crosby opens these painted worlds to her viewers, and invites them to reflect upon their own experiences, memories, and emotions.
