Talk Time With Ibrahim Mahama
March 6, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
Artist Ibrahim Mahama discusses his own work and provides insight into contemporary art practice in Ghana today, as well as looking at the role an older generation of Ghanaian artists have played in art history through their search for new modes of artistic expression.
Ibrahim Mahama (b. 1987, Tamale) lives and works between Tamale and Accra. He studied painting and sculpture at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi. Known for his large-scale, site-specific installations composed of jute sacks that investigate the material remnants of Ghana’s commodity markets, his work has been installed in various public locations in and around Kumasi and Accra. Recent international exhibitions include: Material Effects, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, Michigan, USA (2015-16); All the World’s Futures, 56th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, Venice, Italy (2015); and Pangaea II: New Art from Africa and Latin America, Saatchi Gallery, London, UK (2015) amongst others.
