Talk: In Between Ghana and London

6:30pm, Thu 02 May 2024

Hear Campbell Addy, Mahaneela and BAFIC in conversation

Each with strong ties to Ghana and the UK, this talk focuses on the shared histories and unique experiences that connect these three photographers. Working in diaspora, across time and place, how does a common heritage link their respective approaches to photography? In what ways does place influence a photographic practice?

In a conversation moderated by Bianca Manu, we consider the personal bonds and networks that have emerged out of the cultural exchange between these two places.

In collaboration with Manju Journal, a Ghana-based Pan-African digital platform celebrating contemporary Africa and its diaspora at the intersection of Art, Fashion, Photography and Culture. Their first art book, Voices: Ghana's Artists In Their Own Words, was published last year and features all four speakers to this talk as well as over 80 other contemporaries in Ghana's vibrant visual arts scene. The book will be available for purchase on the night.
