Moving away from the exchange of a regularizing femininity, Mother of Mankind focuses on the particular insight of Black people, presenting artists whose development of femininity is conceptualized in its application to women in Africa and its diaspora. Hailing from countries ranging from Nigeria, Ghana, and South Africa to Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and France, these artists deliberately reject and rethink the usual norms of excellence, discernment, and representation, reclaiming control of their histories and foregrounding the knowledge and character of Black women. Artists from around the globe such as Jamilla Okubo, Emma Prempeh, Ekene Maduka, Adebunmi Gbadebo, Ayobola Kekere-Ekun, Mookho Ntho, Cece Phillips, Alexandria Couch, Sola Olulode, Marcellina Akpojotor, Muofhe Manavhela, Cinthia Sifa Mulanga, Damilola Onosowbo Marcus, Tobi Chinaza Agbor, Alexandra Falade, Sophia Oshodin, Bria Fernandes, Dimakatso Mathopa, curated by Adora Mba of ADA Contemporary Gallery in Accra.
