If you are not familiar with the unique art of South Florida’s Onajide Shabaka, his first solo show at the gallery offers a great introduction. Shabaka – almost as much a botanist and anthropologist as photographer, sculptor and painter – has studied and followed the paths of various plants, foods, and cultures that crossed the Atlantic during the slave trade. Alosúgbe traces the botanical and historical roots of much of the Americas through photographs and collages on paper that resulted from years of research in the Carolinas, Georgia, and the Caribbean.
