Arnolfini - est 1961

‘Beauty, in one sense, is a narrative, an experience, and a value so powerful that it can transform even the most powerful among us into the weakest in a moment. In Praise of Beauty is creative questioning, a deliberate act of bringing beauty into focus, and an opportunity to explore, discover, and rediscover its essence.’ Adébayo Bolaji.

Arnolfini welcome you into the kaleidoscopic and multidisciplinary world of Adébayo Bolaji, whose solo exhibition In Praise of Beauty takes over the first-floor galleries this summer, exploring and questioning notions of beauty through painting, sculpture, film and writing.
