Join us at Gallery 1957 at the Kempinski Accra for the opening reception of Gerald Chukwuma's first solo show in Ghana.

In a new series of work spanning paintings, sculptures and collage, Chukwuma explores migration as a constant process of transformation and reinvention. Considering the implications of globalisation on his local community, Chukwuma transforms everyday materials to render new stories of Nigeria’s socio-political landscape. The artist draws on the movements of people through voluntary and forced migration as a vital stage in the progress of our collective humanity. This sense of optimism instils his work with playfully illustrative characters, drawn from a wide variety of visual forms present in Nigeria’s deep cultural history.

Location : Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City across Children's Park, Accra
Organiser: Gallery 1957
