What's included
    Meet Your Curator



    Zohra Opoku is a globally recognized artist of German and Ghanaian descent based in Accra. She recently won the floor prize at the Armory Art Fair in New York and is sought out by collectors from around the world. She examines the political, historical, cultural, and socio-economic influences in the formation of personal identities, particularly in the context of contemporary Ghana. Her practice centers around textiles and traditional Ghanaian dress codes, which have been an inherent part of the country’s identity and industry throughout West Africa’s complex history and serve as vehicles for her to connect to the abstraction of identity in a tangible way. Her experiences center around exploring her work intimately and also connecting to the way she explores Accra her home.
