Mitochondria Gallery is pleased to present our summer group exhibition, “Gathering at Dawn.” In the soft hues of the first light of dawn, hope and possibility emerge. “Gathering at Dawn” is not just an exhibition but a celebration of this transformative moment, where artists from Africa and the African diaspora unveil their fresh perspectives and narratives. This exhibition features new works from Izere Antoine, Ejiro Fenegal, Tiemar Tegene, Nedia Were, Ismael Kwizera, Alex Peter Idoko, Kinglsey Obasi, and Unyime Edet. In the form of sculptures, paintings, collages, and printmaking, these artists challenge the boundaries of their artistic expressions.
The exhibition is a tribute to the power of art to inspire, provoke, and unite, offering a glimpse into the myriad possibilities that await at the dawn of each new day.
