The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born - an Art Event
Art Installation Event
We are happy to invite you to the exhibition Art Experience "The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born".
The event will present the work of 20 artists in two locations, the Goethe Institut of Accra and the comunity of La.
Ayi Kwei Armah’s novel about post-independence Ghana “The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born” is among the most powerful post-colonial novels and arguably the best book ever written in Ghana. “The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born” therefore offers a rich source of inspiration to take stock of Ghana by using its descriptive approach, documenting the state of affairs through a lucid eye and with a strong engagement.
This is an Art Event is set up that resonates with the ideas of the novel, using different means of expression, taken from the domain of fine and applied arts.
The Art Exhibit is simultaneously set up at two locations: in the La neighbourhood (adjacent to the Artists Alliance) and at the Goethe-Institut. The Goethe exhibition will bring elements from La into a museum space, highlighting specific accents and perspectives. The opening times are 8am to 7pm MON to FRI and 910am to 4pm on SAT 2 and 9. Closed on Sunday.
The La exhibition will exhibit the art works in the open air, many of which will be in situ installations, or art works that will be exhibited on the walls of houses. A webcam connection will bring the La exhibit live into the Goethe-Institut exhibit.
Learn about the first opening of Art Experience "The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born" on May 31 and about the second opening on June 2.
