Into the Midst of Things: Regina Agu, ruby onyinyechi amanze, and Wura-Natasha Ogunji; Diverse Works-May 13- July 22, 2017


Performance, drawing, and writing are each about mark making. The bodily gesture in a performance carries with it a historical trace and movement knowledge, the linear gestures of drawing leave physical marks on a surface, and writing can be thought of as a form of drawing with language. into the midst of things brings together three artists—Regina Agu, ruby onyinyechi amanze, and Wura-Natasha Ogunji—who are truly invested in mark making in all of its forms to offer complex counterpoints to dominant cultural and historical narratives. The exhibition title refers to in media res, a literary term that describes a narrative that begins somewhere in the middle of the action.
