    CLAUDETTE'S STAR

    Ayo Akingbade United Kingdom, 2019

    Using Claudette Johnson’s work as a launchpad for aesthetic interrogation, Ayo Akingbade forges a poetic dialogue between young artists and the legacies of their forebears. A rumination on art and representation, Claudette’s Star sees past, present, and future commingled in an ever-evolving archive.

    DEAR BABYLON

    Ayo Akingbade United Kingdom, 2019

    Capturing the humanity of public housing in the face of oppressive legislation and gentrification, this beautiful living document of London urbanism articulates the frustrations of a new working-class generation. The title, and the reggae touch, are a nod to Franco Rosso’s once-suppressed Babylon.
