After four showings on the African continent in 2010, Hervé Youmbi takes his Totems across the Atlantic. On April 29, 2011 Hervé Youmbi's "Totems to Haunt Our Dreams" installation opened in a stunning one-man show at Axis Gallery (New York). The show took place in the cutting edge space recently opened in downtown Newark (New Jersey) by Los Angeles-based Submerged Art, a gallery cum community arts space that brings in a wide cross section of folks, from art students and high school kids to gang members and art scene mavens from across the New York area. The opening was followed by a massive hip hop 'n punk slam, complete with seriously engaged political lyrics and mosh pit. On the occasion of the opening, the artist traveled to Washington, DC a few days later to give a talk at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African Art on May 3, 2011. Many thanks to Lisa Brittan and Gary Van Wyk of Axis Gallery and to Solomon Anaya of Submerged Art.
