 As part of the year of return activities, the Kuenyehia Trust for Contemporary Art is pleased to present ‘Diaspora - from local to foreign’ an exclusive exhibition featuring Yaw Owusu, Sela Adjei, Isshaq Ismael, Isaac Opoku.

 The  Ghanaian artists selected are among the 42 shortlisted artists of the Kuenyehia Prize for Contemporary Art over its six years of existence. The showcased works will communicate the artists’ interpretation of issues pertaining to identity.

 As we celebrate the Year of Return, the resilience of Afro-Descendants and their ability to overcome a traumatic past the exhibition seeks to  question and highlight the complex relationships between Ghana, its Diaspora and the Global African Family.

 The exhibition will explore defining one’s identity and navigating between several spaces; the welcoming country and the country of origin, the foreign and the local. As the Ghanian author Taiye Selasi puts it “Don’t ask where I am from, ask where I am a local”. But what does it mean to be a local?

 Artists, being the visionaries they are, will through their works definitely spark insightful conversations on the Diaspora, the foreign and the local.
