About me

Bolanle Tajudeen (b. 1988, Nigeria and raised in London) is the curator and the founder of Black Blossoms, a platform which promotes black women visual artists and creatives by hosting regular exhibitions, panels, and screenings throughout the United Kingdom. In 2017, she used this platform to curate an exhibition featuring works by alumni from the University of the Arts London, at the High Holborn Showroom Gallery, which was reviewed in Buzzfeed and featured on a BBC documentary. She is also the co-curator of the touring exhibition, 'If We Are Going to Heal Let it be Glorious', showcasing the works of 31 black women and non-binary visual artists, which was listed as a must see exhibition by A-N news and Afropunk. In 2018 & 2019 she taught the sold out course 'Art in the Age of Black Girl Magic’ at Tate Britain and Tate Modern with the focus on being on the contemporary and historical practices of Black Women and Black non- binary people.The course has received press in Vogue, Dazed and Metro. In 2020 Bolanle will curate an evening of performances at Tate Britain by black women artists, exploring the intersections of race, African spirituality and climate change. Tajudeen is a recipient of the Shades of Noir 'Teaching Within' Scholarship, obtaining a PgCert in Academic Practice: Art, Design and Communication from London College of Fashion, whilst lecturing on MA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art. As a regular arts and cultural writer with bylines in Dazed, Prospect Magazine, she hopes to inspire a new generation of artist and art professionals to tackle socio-political issues through their creative practice(s).
