Retro Africa: Do This in Memory of Us

Lehmann Maupin is presenting an exhibition by Nigerian-based Gallery Retro Africa named “Do This in Memory of Us,” launching July 19 through August 17 2021.

July 19, 2021 - August 17, 2021

Lehmann Maupin is presenting an exhibition by Nigerian-based Gallery Retro Africa named “Do This in Memory of Us,” open through August 17 2021.

The group show features work by Nigerian-American artist and writer Victor Ehikhamenor, Congolese painter Chéri Samba, and African-American artist Nate Lewis. It will be the first takeover of its kind at Lehmann Maupin and the Nigerian Gallery's first U.S exhibition. 

The exhibition focuses on exploring resonances and divergences between African and African American art. “Do This in Memory of Us” examines the relationship between the ancient African kingdom of Benin featuring new works that express the cultural connections between the African heritage and the African American diaspora, building a cohesive theme around Ehikhamenor’s practice.
