Digital connections, chain reactions and the ubiquitous sound-bites and snappy chatter of social media. An exhibition of our time!
From the team who created 2014’s much-acclaimed
beyond exhibition comes AKwAAbytES, an innovative,
pop-up groupshow opening in Accra on 2 October 2015.
Once again this exhibition is conceived and curated by
BEYOND COLLECTIVE founding member Rania Odaymat,
and hosted by La Maison founder Nada Moukarzel.
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
