Yinka Ilori: PARABLES FOR HAPPINESS

LONDON.

The display showcases key elements of Ilori’s vibrant aesthetic, which throughout his career have been drawn from a mix of cultures that came together in the north London diaspora community where he grew up.

It also highlights some of the most important aspects of Ilori’s work – such as his billboard graphics that promote joy – and places them beside key influences, especially Nigerian textiles. These African fabrics of his childhood are the foundation of his practice, and he regularly captures the colourful geometric patterns that feature in Nigerian design in his work.

Visitors will get to discover 100 objects ranging from artworks, photographs and furniture, to textiles, books and personal possessions, offering an unprecedented glimpse into Ilori’s use of the power of design to absorb cultural influences and express London’s rich mix of identities.

5 September 2022 – 25 June 2023. 224-238 Kensington High St, London W8 6AG.
