Throughout art history, the creative (Artists) have been thought of as people who are either gifted geniuses, creatively resourceful or outright 'crazy'! These assertions come about because artists tend generally to be rather eccentric. Whereas many artists will claim to work from nothingness, there is the generally held ideal that artistic inspiration comes from muses. Who or what are the muses? Several have considered muses as men, women or even abstract ideas that trigger the creative urge in us. How far can we trust in these muses? How sure are we of their existence? How different will our art production be if we did not have muses? To what length does the artist's dependence on his/her muses affect broader success? The questions will surely be numerous. And it is the nuanced negotiations with these questions that the "Muses" exhibition will present. A mottled selection of contemporary Ghanaian artists will offer their contribution to this discourse in various means. Their work will be in conversation with one-another's work, as they also engage in dialogue with themselves.
