ABOUT ANTHONY AKINBOLA

Akinbola is the Museum's eighth MAD Artist Fellow, a fellowship created to promote emerging artists from historically underrepresented communities. A first-generation American of Nigerian origin, Anthony Akinbola’s layered and multifaceted compositions celebrate and reconcile the cultures that compose his identity. At MAD, Akinbola continued his exploration of the use of durags—fiber scarves used in the maintenance of black hair—as both a material for art-making and a commentary on larger issues of identity, respectability, and commodification of African American culture.
