Toyin Ojih Odutola

Tell Me A Story, I Don't Care If It's True

$100

Tell Me A Story, I Don’t Care If It’s True is an oversized hardcover publication that documents Toyin Ojih Odutola's most recent solo exhibition at Jack Shainman gallery of new works on paper. The series attempts to question proclivities towards interpretation and the degrees of bias that effect legibility.

The invented stories presented in the series of  diptychs and standalone drawings "engage with variables, be they irreverent, painful, humorous and disturbing—the many facets of life and our attempts to communicate these moments," says 
Ojih Odutola. 

The publication features writing by the artist and Reginald Moore.
