Alumni Sola Olulode shows at VO Curations 13th February to 28th March

Sola, who graduated in 2018 and was shortlisted for the Evening Standard Art Prize 2018, has an exhibition ‘Where the Ocean Meets the Beach’ at VO Curations from 13 February until 28 March showing a new series of paintings in which narratives of queer and black identity culminate in the representation of romantic relationships an their complexities.

Taken from artist Travis Alabanza’s poem The Sea, the exhibition title refers to Alabanza’s feeling on gender fluidity as a boundless place similar to ‘where the ocean meets the beach’. Analogously to Alabanza’s sentiment, Olulode renders the fluidity of emotions that chronicle the falling in love.
