HERITAGE

Duration of exhibition: 14.05.2021 - 14.07.2021

In the group exhibition HERITAGE (14th May - 14. July 2021) Gallery Melbye-Konan presents paintings by the first generation of Ivorian artists alongside works by international artists. In particular, the exhibition honours the great painter Michel Kodjo (1935-2021), who passed away in March of this year, and Samir Zarour (born 1942), who was the first Ivorian artist to graduate from the Ecole de Beaux-Arts in Paris. Organised in dialogue with artists of the younger generation (Yéanzi, Serges Aboua, Belen oder Vivian Timothy), the exhibition engages with current postcolonial discourse around and showcases a different perspectives from Africa, Germany and the diaspora.
