Created with PR pro and fashion consultant, Arieta Mujay, the exhibit will see a highly visual, conceptual space made up of 4 living rooms, livened by illustrations, curated film, archival footage and spoken word performances, with Chichia’s Christine Mhando bringing her signature East African vibes and Yinka Ilori displaying his West African-infused chair designs.

Speaking of the upcoming event, presented by NOW Gallery, a statement said the event would reflect;

“…Language of traditional Nigeria and Swahili parables… thought-provoking furniture, indigenous plants, designed objects, garments and wallpapers inspired by bespoke Khanga textiles, with visitors encouraged to navigate and explore.”
