Gallery 1957 presents a solo exhibition by the award-winning Ivorian photographer and mixed media artist Joana Choumali at Unseen Amsterdam 2019, running from 20 - 22 September, 2019. Presenting new works which blend photography with collage and embroidery, the exhibition is made of works from the series Alba’hian. It will also debut additional works inspired by the artist’s early-morning explorations of Accra in the summer of 2019; marking a departure for the artist, this latest body of work sees the artist working on a larger scale (up to 2m x 1m), for the first time. Joana’s recent series "ça va aller..." (it will be OK) (2016-2019) is shortlisted for the 8th cycle of Prix Pictet “Hope”.
