Couleurs d’âme (Soul Colours) 🌐

Du 3 mai au 15 juin 2019

Galerie Blain|Southern
547 W 25th Street
New York

Pour l’exposition inaugurale de sa galerie new yorkaise, Blain|Southern presente la première exposition personnelle de l’artiste malien Abdoulaye Konaté.

Widely recognised as one of West Africa’s preeminent artists, Konaté is known for compositions in dyed and woven Malian cotton that combine symbolic references and material associations, and balance global political and social reflections with a reference to his own local and cultural history.

Couleurs d’âme focuses on the artist’s new abstract work, accompanied by several examples of landmark earlier pieces that illustrate the artist’s progression over time towards purely abstract compositions.
