Gallery 1957 opens a second space in Accra

A year after launching, the gallery’s expansion will allow the gallery to commission larger site-specific projects enabling their growing roster of West African artists to engage with an entirely new space. The new location is an exhibition and project space of 220m² in Accra’s new Galleria Mall and compliments the gallery’s existing location at the nearby Kempinski Hotel.

Inaugurated with a solo exhibition by British-Ghanaian artist Godfried Donkor (The First Day of the Yam Custom: 1817, curated by Koyo Kouoh and on until 30 October); upcoming exhibitions include a collaborative project between fantasy coffin artist Paa Joe and performance artist Elisabeth Efua Sutherland, opening 21 November 2017, to coincide with Paa Joe’s 70th birthday.
