We are proud to announce the opening of Sandra Poulson’s solo exhibition ‘Economy of the Dust’, opening Friday 13 May until 30 June, at 56 Conduit Street with a private view on Thursday 12 May from 6-8pm.
Developed during her four month residency at V.O Curations, the show will present a series of new works, which draw from the artist’s personal experience of growing up in Luanda — speaking to the social and economic landscape of the city, and reflecting upon its accidental gifts.
