This weekend British-Ghanaian artist Godfried Donkor’s solo exhibition Battle Royale: Last Man Standing - Part 1 opens at Gallery 1957. Created over the artist’s seven-month residency with the gallery, this exhibition is a culmination of more than 20 years research into the intertwined histories of boxing and slavery in the UK, US and Ghana. Coinciding with Ivorian photographer and mixed media artist Joana Choumali’s solo show How Do You Spell A Silent Sound also at Gallery 1957, both exhibitions will have their opening receptions on Saturday 24 August from 5:30PM. Continuing the weekend’s programme, both will give artist talks at the Kempinski Hotel on Sunday from 10AM.
