It’s been a very difficult year so far and each passing day is a reminder that things are going to get harder, with the current pandemic and racial disparities leaving little certainty and a lot of confusion about the world as we know it. While socialising with our friends and normal life may remain on pause for now, galleries and institutions are coming up with innovative ways for art lovers to continue consuming art online.
Last month, Polartics kicked off their first virtual exhibition, proving that the way we consume art in the future may be changing. This month, we’re getting more from the art world, as Terra Kulture is unveiling a new online exhibition titled ‘Colour in Light’. This endeavour is a joint exhibition of a diverse selection of works by Chigozie Obi, Osagie, U.a.x Seyi, Apreel Geek, and Chukwuka Nwobi exploring the relationship between colour and light, emoting colour through light and shadow. The exhibition will be on from this month till August, and can be viewed here.

Speaking about the exhibition, the curator Tife Adedeji shared that:
“We see colour everywhere. We may say we do not see colour, but we perceive it. Colour helps us discern the world. ‘Colour In Light’ is a visual journey through the eyes of the artists who establish emotions through colour and intensity in their work.
The exhibition will explore their disparate renditions of colour in light to weave their viewer with a more conscious view on colour, and its competence in our vibrations, sensibilities, and environment”.
In addition, Terra Kulture is also calling for submissions for a second online exhibition running from this month until December around the theme ‘Art in Quarantine’. You can apply for the exhibition here.
