Past and Current Exhibitions
Exhibition: Intrinsic
Current works of Patrick-Tagoe Turkson
Nu Gallery- Nubuke Foundation
Ongoing till 3 October 2015

Patrick Tagoe-Turkson's works consist of mixed media and installations mostly made out of found objects.
Patrick connects stories and histories whilst giving new context to the works in the subtle structures he creates.
"... takes this material which seems to have no voice or attraction and transforms it through artistic processes by giving it another voice, meaning"
Events Elsewhere
Chale Wote Festival
Jamestown, Accra
20 to 23 August 2015

There was something for everyone at Chale Wote festival this year.
With film, talks, contemporary art forms- performance, installations, workshops, photography, music...with artists from Ghana, Nigeria, USA, Europe, South Africa-seen through the lens of this year's theme-African Electronics.
Events which were part of the Ga Homowo festival seemlessly merged into the crowds as if previously choreographed.
I found myself ringside at a boxing match of young boxers, feasted on photography from the Deo Gratia Studio and bought some beautiful electric blue hand-made pottery...
