Event Details

From the team who created 2014’s much-acclaimed BEYOND, exhibition comes AKWAABYTES, an innovative, pop-up group show opening in Accra on 2 October 2015.

For this second collaboration, the exhibition’s theme is inspired by digital connections, chain reactions and the ubiquitous sound-bites and snappy chatter of social media. The works being presented are “stand-alone” units or “digits” that can be woven into a greater whole, but with no restrictions on medium.

Accordingly look forward to strange alliances and pieces crafted in audio, wearable formats, plastic, metal, wood, photography, film, paint and paper, from a radical and inspired group of creatives including Nana Anoff, Panji Anoff, Nii Obodai, Rania Odaymat and Nada Moukarzel.

This year the artists are joined and inspired by Lebanese artist Jean-Marc Nahas, who will arrive for the first time in West Africa to partake in the show and create some of his pieces in real time.

AKWAABYTES is on from 2 – 8 October at the newly launched La Maison space at Icon House, which will be transformed into a gallery space for the duration of the exhibition.
