Tiwani Contemporary

Today BBC News posted a video about Tiwani Contemporary, a new African art gallery in London, 16 Little Portland Street, W1W 8BP. There's only one problem: the video shows the inaugural exhibition The Tie that Binds Us, which closed a week ago (CLICK). Whoops! Bit late, Auntie. The next exhibition - curated in Paris, not Africa - is Synchronicity II, which runs from 3 February to 17 March. Whatever happened to Synchronicity I? Bombed in Paris? I'm afraid Tiwani Contemporary is typical of contemporary art galleries in that it is long on bull and short on talent (title link). I know a number of talented African artists who could do far better than what I've seen of Tiwani tripe.
