Kokopelli Gallery Presents, Parallel Passages: Types and Shadows

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Typology studies classifications in the types of things based on similarities they have in common. In art history, there are always recurring themes and patterns as artists inspire other generations of artists, and the issues which artists represent in their works still persist. 

We are pleased to cordially invite you to an exhibition that immerses you in symbolic storytelling and opens you to the diverse world of “Parallel Passages: Typology“. This is a group exhibition, featuring selected works from 8 indigenous Nigerian artists across paintings and mixed media pieces, collated to give you an interactive, thought-provoking experience on the intricacies of Typology.
