Guest Projects

Following the success of the Royal Opera House Africa Weekend curated by Yinka Shonibare MBE, Guest Projects has launched Guest Projects Africa.
Showcasing cutting edge African Art forms, Guest Projects Africa creates a platform for African artists of all disciplines including spoken word, dance, fashion, architecture, visual arts, and more.

Re-introducing Oshun
October 7-17 2013
Re-Introducing Oshun, is an interdisciplinary project using photography, film, prose and objects to re-discover black women’s bodies as sacred places of intimacy, sensuality and beauty.
Oshun is a West African Orisha from the Yoruba faith and culture whose role concerns, intimacy, beauty and diplomacy. We will be bringing this deity to life, through the approach of ‘visual rhetoric.’ The intention is for us to have the power, control and ownership to create our own representation.
We are a collective consisting of four female artists from the African Diaspora, led by -
Janine Francois, Creative Producer/Director
Stella Odunlami, Curator
Zainab Adamu, Photographer/Filmmaker
Belinda Zhawi, Writer and Griot.
