We are delighted to officially announce to you the opening dates and Gallery locations for Wiz Edinam Kudowor’s first major Retrospective in Accra. The collection is made up of over 50 powerful paintings and other assorted works that have never been displayed in the public domain.

After a series of discussions and curatorial advice, we decided to stage a multiple location exhibition due to the expansive nature of the collection. The collection spans a period of 40 years including works from Wiz’ high school days from the early 70’s. The works include figure drawing, portraiture, still life, architectural designs, fabric designs and his well known signature style of figurative abstraction with influences of African Masks, Geometric patterns and esoteric symbolism. The medium range from pastel, acrylic, charcoal portraits, collage, appliqué and watercolour.

The exhibition opens at Ano Gallery on Friday, 16th March and follows through with subsequent openings on 20th and 22nd at Berj Gallery and Artists Alliance Gallery respectively.

Wiz has exhibited widely in Ghana and has participated in several major international exhibitions. He designed and sculpted the relief work on the facade of the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum. Some of his masterpieces can be found in permanent collections in reputable Modern Art Galleries and Private Collections including:

Standard Chartered Bank, Accra, Ghana.
The Alfred Spinnler Collection
African America Museum, Dallas, Texas
Osaka Prefecture Contemporary Art Collection, Osaka, Japan
Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, Accra, Ghana
Ghana National Museum, Accra, Ghana
Dei Foundation, Accra, Ghana
YSB Collection, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Jubilee House, Presidential House, Accra, Ghana
Tun Daim Zainuddin Collection, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

This retrospective will reestablish Wiz Kudowor as a powerful force to reckon with in the vibrant Ghanaian art scene. Sela Adjei will be the lead Curator for the Exhibition.
Curatorial advisors for the exhibition are Prof. Ablade Glover
and Nana Oforiatta Ayim.
