Tiwani contemporary


Founded in 2011 by Maria Varnava, Tiwani Contemporary exhibits and represents international contemporary artists, focussing on Africa and its diaspora.

Since its establishment, the gallery continues to showcase new and established talent – mounting landmark and critically-acclaimed exhibitions in a series of firsts. Artists such as Njideka Akunyili-Crosby, Emeka Ogboh, Simone Leigh and Kapwani Kiwanga showed at Tiwani Contemporary in the early stages of their career. In 2019,  the gallery presented the first international solo exhibition of American post-minimalist Maren Hassinger. 

In late 2021, the gallery celebrates its 10th anniversary. 


Tiwani Contemporary will open on Thursday 15th April by appointment only. Please book a viewing slot here.
