Yewande YoYo Odunubi is a neurodivergent artist, cultural producer and researcher working in the spaces between curation, performance, dance, research and facilitation. Her practice is centred around the core enquiry: what does the body need to dream? Using a reflexive approach, Yewande places the (and her) body at the centre of her practice, playing and experimenting with different conditions that might nurture and give possibility to a thriving, dreaming self. She is interested in how theory and practice can be processed and actioned in the body through movement.

Yewande is one half of the wayward, motile collaborative duo with artist, curator and friend Rohan Ayinde. As a Cultural Producer she frequently collaborates with London based art and music curators BBZ and Touching Bass, and has worked with a range of cultural organisations, including the 198 Contemporary, A New Direction, Institute of Contemporary Arts, Now Gallery, Southbank Centre, Tate, Wellcome Collection and V&A.

The artist was in the following exhibition:
Jerwood UNITe 2021 Open Studios
