Peju Alatise photo 1Sulger-Buel Gallery cordially invites you to attend the opening reception of Memoirs of the forgotten, a solo exhibition by Nigerian artist Péju Alatise. The exhibition will be opened on Thursday 12 September 2019 at 18:30 and concludes on Thursday 31 October 2019.

As an interdisciplinary artist, architect and author of two novels, Peju Alatise has been practising as an independent studio artist in Nigeria since 1998. She utilises a range of different materials as a medium in which to analyse the various socio-political issues. Alatise has also been an influential voice on the Child Not Bride campaign in Nigeria, with her work regularly feeding into this discourse. She is also the founder of the ANAI Foundation – a non-profit foundation dedicated to the development of visual arts in Nigeria, offering sponsored training programs for artists.

Alatise is a fellow at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art and the 2017 winner of the FNB Art Prize in Johannesburg. Her work was exhibited at the 57th Venice Biennale as well as in numerous exhibitions in New York, Florence, Morocco and London.
