Opening Reception: Monsego Shula Exhibition

May 26, 2023 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Gallery Article 15 (1624 Wisconsin Ave NW)

Pop in to the opening reception held at the gallery to get the first view of Congolese artist Monsengo Shula’s eccentric and expansive works accompanied with drinks, music, and friends!

Tradition & Modernity includes eye-catching imagery to give viewers a peak into the surrealist world of artist Monsengo Shula. Using traditional African patterns and motifs combined with images highlighting the political realities and novelties of life today, Shula provokes an imaginative viewing experience. Finding sanctuary in the whim of Shula’s large scale oil paintings, his works encourage curiosity.

Tradition & Modernity is Monsengo Shula’s first-ever exhibition held in the United States. We are excited to welcome his work and all it has to bring!
