Artist Talk: Tayo Adekunle

As part of their September residency at Glasgow Zine Library, Harvey Dimond presents an artist talk by Scotland-based artist Tayo Adekunle.

Artist Talk: Tayo Adekunle

About Artist Talk: Tayo Adekunle

Tayo will present and speak about her work in this online event, and there will be a short Q&A following the talk. Scotland-based artists Sekai Machache and Camara Taylor will produce artistic responses to this event throughout September and October.

Tayo Adekunle is a British Nigerian photographer based in Edinburgh. Working a lot with self-portraiture, she uses her work to explore issues surrounding race, gender and sexuality as well as racial and colonial history.

Her work is centred around reworkings of historical tropes relating to the black female body, taking from contexts that include art historical paintings and sculptures as well as 19th century colonial photography. By placing historical imagery in a contemporary context, the relationship between the treatment of the black female body in the past and its treatment in the present day is explored.
