Aïda Touré: Luminous Dark Matter

February 8th - February 28th 2015

In celebration of Black History Month, Rio II Gallery is pleased to present the exhibit "Luminous Dark Matter" by Gabonese Malian artist Aïda Touré. This will be her second New York solo show (curated by Jose Reyes) since her exhibit "Inner Treasures" at Rio Penthouse Gallery in 2011. The opening reception is on Sunday February 8th, 3-6pm.

The "Luminous Dark Matter" exhibit comprises the series of the same title by the artist as well as abstract paintings inspired by her Sufi poetry. "Luminous Dark Matter" evokes the Unity of all as the series explores the sublime origin of mankind through the portrayal of Black women in ancient historical contexts. 

The art works of Aïda Touré are renowned for their exuberance which celebrates the Sufi tradition. Her exalting paintings are in private and public art collections internationally.

Aïda Touré was born in Gabon, she published three books of Sufi poetry whose imagery suddenly inspired her to start painting.
