Description

Join us on 26 April for our Kids Half Term Takeover of our current exhibition 'Kena Hetuna, Open & Closed'. Using our family activity guides, explore our exhibition of paintings, prints and installations. The resource and materials are free to use. Please note that this is not a led workshop, but our team will be on hand to answer any questions.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Pamela Clarkson and Atta Kwami are painters and printmakers who spend their time between their homes and studios in Loughborough, UK and Kumasi, Ghana. Both artists produce artworks which refer to architecture, fabrics, tools, people and place, combining bright and striking lines, shapes, patterns and colours. Pamela and Atta make art with an attitude of hope.

‘Kena Hetuna, Open and Closed’ refers to the rhythms of the marketplace, a social network made up of family businesses, ebullient characters, sales talk, signage and digital adverts, bend down boutiques and makeshift stalls open to the elements. For Pamela and Atta the marketplace symbolises the international exchange and acceptance they have experienced when living between Loughborough and Kumasi.

Pamela and Atta will partner together for the exhibition, building a temporary kiosk structure in the gallery of Modern Painters, New Decorators and filling the space with paintings, prints and sculptures recently made in Ghana alongside previously unshown work.
