About

Urevbu Contemporary represents emerging and mid-career artists with the primary purpose of supporting the practice and work of artists from Africa and its Diaspora while increasing opportunities for artists to introduce their artwork to new geographies. The gallery is deeply committed to presenting culturally significant exhibitions, programming and curated experiences that spark cross cultural dialogue to inspire an appreciation for diversity. Urevbu Contemporary also commissions artists who work in a variety of mediums on corporate and independent projects. The gallery is celebrated for its innovative exhibitions and artists who engage in critical social and cultural dialogue of the day that transcends boundaries between Western and non Western cultures.

 

Urevbu Contemporary, opened in 2015, is located in the historic South Main Arts District in downtown Memphis, TN and is owned by Sheila Urevbu.

 

Urevbu Contemporary does not accept unsolicited artist applications.
