Kokopelli Gallery announces All Guts, an exhibition of new works by Orowole Oluwole, Mosun Mewase, Peter Adelaja, Sotonye Jumbo, Gbenga Adeku, Ajibo Ikechukwu, Gbenga Olawole and Julius Ugochukwu. Curated by Sabo Kpade.

All Guts is an exhibition of diverse works by eight of Nigeria’s leading contemporary artists. The exhibition is a meditation on ideas around figuration and abstraction, rendered in distinct modalities of art making. The varied works range from paintings to metal foil relief printing, from sculptural work and collage to assemblage art. The featured artists in All Guts are proud alumni of August Artist Retreat (2022), the flagship institution run by Bruce Onobrakpeya Foundation (BOF).

A strong correspondence emerges between the works in All Guts, chief of which is artistic integrity. The two dramatic aspects of All Guts are: a survey that focuses on divergent interpretations of contemporary art, and an opportunity to engender a conversation between a generation of early career artists who may define Nigerian art for decades to come.
