Tiwani Contemporary is pleased to present The Sweetest Taboo, our second solo exhibition with Michaela Yearwood-Dan. Recently the artist has been thinking about the priorities for affirming spaces of self and collective actualisation, specifically Poc and queer space(s), community needs and desires, that include her own.

Projected and inscribed upon the large-scale paintings, extracts of Yearwood-Dan’s experiences, influences, personal thoughts and questions commingle with abstracted and botanical gestures and marks that border, lead towards and give way to speculative clearings; spaces and gaps that have the capacity to be filled with utopic imaginings. The works remain vested in holding and debating the real-life politics and cultural demands of femme, black and queer individuals in the world coming together as communities, manifesting and nurturing critical, safe and joyous environments.
