Digital Event - White Cube: Studio Visit and Q&A with Ibrahim Mahama

Virtual Studio Visit

9th October 2020
5pm-6pm BST

Join Ibrahim Mahama on an online visit to Nkrumah Voli, a huge concrete silo recently acquired by the artist on the outskirts of Tamale in northern Ghana. 

Modernist-style silos were built in the 1950s by the Ghana Cocoa Processing Company to store cocoa beans, and are dotted around the Ghanaian landscape today. The structures are seen by Mahama as important symbols of the country’s self-determination following independence from British colonial rule in 1957.

This talk coincides with Frieze London 2020 and Ibrahim Mahama’s White Cube online solo exhibition Letters From the Void [hyperlink when link available] (2 October - 17 November 2020). 

Led by Susan May, Global Artistic Director at White Cube, the audience will have the opportunity to submit live questions to the artist during this event.

Please note that this event has now passed.
