Details

Show Me The World Mister is a solo exhibition by Ayo Akingbade comprising of two new film commissions. Shot on location in Nigeria, The Fist and Faluyi are Akingbade’s most ambitious productions to date, building upon her continued interest in history, place-making, legacy and power.

The Fist is a portrait of the Guinness brewery in Lagos, where histories of industrialisation and labour collide; while Faluyi follows protagonist Ife on a journey tracing familial legacy and mysticism in ancestral lands. Both films have been acquired by the Whitworth and will be shown together in a bespoke installation designed by the artist.
