On Saturday 19 August, Gallery 1957 will be hosting the opening reception of Godfried Donkor’s solo show at the gallery: 'The First Day of the Yam Custom: 1817'. Godfried Donkor’s new body of work reimagines an illustration by the 19th century English explorer Thomas Bowdich. Created in 1818, the work is thought to be the first recorded image of the visual aesthetic and culture of the Asante region of Ghana. Join us for the opening of the exhibition, followed by a drinks reception, from 6.30pm – 10.30pm.
