Ayo Akingbade

London-based artist and filmmaker Ayo Akingbade is known for her narratives rooted in representation, power, legacy and space. Her latest film Dear Babylon completes No News Today, a three-part series on social housing. Paying homage to the community-driven documentary footage of Hackney’s past, while also looking at the ever-shifting landscape of London’s future and what that holds, her work is both reflective and speculative.
