I HAVE EVERYTHING I NEED
Gretchen Andrew. March 3 - March 5, 2023. Special project section (Un)framed. (un)Fair, (un)EXPECTED ART FAIR. Milan, ItalyWith Affirmation Ads, Gretchen presents her second major body of work. While she targeted the uncontrolled power of Big Tech through Google with her search engine manipulating Vision Boards, she now turns against the advertising-based structures of Facebook and Instagram and allows you to own and control your digital space, treating your Instagram feed the way you would your living room. Affirmation Ads were recently featured in the December 2022 issue of Art – Das Kunstmagazin.
I Love Sharing the Bed with You: Sola Olulode
September 20th - September 26th, 2021. Art Fair Volta Basel 2021. Switzerland
ARTPOWHER Contemporary is thrilled to announce its participation at VOLTA Basel 2021, staging the solo show

Artsy Viewing Room
Closing December 31, 2021
Sola Olulode’s ‘I Love Sharing the Bed with You’ focuses on the beauty of the romance between Black Womxn and is imbued with loving scenes and intimate moments of rest and reflection. Like much of Olulode’s work, the paintings in the series are centered in care. Although Olulode creates works which are innately political due to the intersectionality of her own identity as a queer Black woman, it is rooted in joy. In a time where sexuality and gender-based violence is rife and the pandemic causing us to engage more with the media online; thus confronting countless images of devastating images of the Black body, Olulode’s work is critical. Born out of own her own experience, it offers a gentle insight into the queer Black (British) communities through the lens of Olulode’s reinterpretation of images that display queer Black intimacy in mainstream media. For the first time, Olulode is experimenting with new forms of presentation, taking the paintings away from the ’ traditional’ stretched canvas on bars, to free flowing wall hangings.

The exhibition ‘I Love Sharing The Bed With You’ is accompanied by a signed limited edition catalogue of Sola Olulode's new body of work, featuring an essay by Art Writer Pacheanne Anderson, and photographs of the artist in her studio by Luzie Zoe Lazarus.
