Various exhibitions of the city unite to show the large retrospective of the current art of West Africa.
The show indicates the objective of giving knowledge of the art created in the region, to deepen the connections that unite Manchester and the different countries that form Western Africa.
To achieve this, the exhibition rooms at Manchester Art Gallery, Whitworth Art Gallery, and the Gallery Of Costume, at Platt Hall, have joined forces, to be able to show a wide selection of the artistic styles of the region.
In those three spaces, one could enjoy drawings, photography, sculptures, textile works and videos produced by distinguished artists of the region, like, George Adéagbo, Meshac Gaba, George Osodi and Romuald Hazoumé.
Furthermore, for the first time in the U.K, it will show a selection of new works from emerging/upcoming artists of the region such as, Lucy Azubuike, Emeka Ogboh, Charles Okereke, Nyani Quarmyne and Victoria Udondian.
The exhibition rooms that will welcome the shows, are mentioned in: Manchester Art Gallery in Moseley Street, Whitworth Art Gallery in Oxford Road, and The Gallery Of Costume at Platt Hall, Winslow Street.
