Aisha Seriki’s Heaven is not closed Addresses the Absence of Black Representation in Museums and Galleries #celebratephotography
Aisha Seriki’s Heaven is not closed is an absolutely jaw-dropping power-filled response to a lack of representation. Intern Mag published this piece diving into Aisha Seriki’s work:
“Even though museums have been a hotspot for representing cultures and experiences from all over the world, they have always underrepresented Black women. This is despite the contributions which Black women have made and continued to make to Western society”, Aisha explains. For the portraits, she drew inspiration from Harmonia Rosales and her exhibition ‘New World Consciousness’ as well as the digital artist Aisha. “The centrepiece of the project is the three girls linked with each other, to highlight unity and also community. By using the museum as a backdrop, I aim to highlight that the art world is not closed to us”, she discloses.
