Queens in Exile | 29 Nov 17 – 27 Jan 18 
WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to present Queens in Exile –  a major solo exhibition of new work by Athi-Patra Ruga.

Queens in Exile is about telling better stories. This isn’t simply a revisionist exercise, patching up inconvenient holes in the historical record. Instead, Ruga excavates collective memory and exclusionary national myth to rebuild both in wholly new shapes – to make a world where the exiled can reign. The result is a land of many queens, lost and found and forgotten.
