In Memoriam: Portraits of the Middle Passage in Situ The Nkyinkyim Installation by Kwame Akoto-Bamfo

Kwame Akoto-Bamfo’s 1,300-piece collection metaphorically represents the multitude of West Africans captured and taken to the Americas and the Caribbean from Cape Coast and Elmina, Ghana, during the 16th – 19th centuries.

The Exhibition features several great artists of The Ancestor Project, including Kwame Akoto-Bamfo, Nii Kwartei Quartey (who is the lead artist apprentice) and project photographers, Naa Abina Nelson and Nii Odzenma.

The exhibition will be installed at Cape Coast Castle from June 17 to Septembre 16, 2017. The sculptures will be placed in situ, facing the Atlantic Ocean.
