For 1-54 African Contemporary Art Fair, The Gallery of Everything presents three global artists of African origin.
Almighty God (Kwame Akoto) (b 1950) is a Ghanaian sign-painter and lay-preacher, whose studio creates works which speak explicitly to matters of identity, morality and mortality. Currently on display at MoMA in New York, Abu Bakarr Mansaray (b 1970) is the renowned and idiosyncratic Sierra Leonian draughtsman, whose imaginary defence robots straddle a line between design, mechanics and witchcraft. Johnson Weree (b 1970) is an itinerant autodidact from Liberia, whose otherworldly populations have been curated by artist Mamma Andersson and supported by critic Jerry Saltz.
