10am-4pm, Art Gallery
Free/No booking required
Ghanaian born, University of Sunderland graduate, glass artist Anthony Amoako- Attah has completed an exciting new glass artwork ‘Transition IV’ which entered the Museum’s collection last year.
‘Transition IV’ alongside other glass works by Anthony Amoako-Attah will be on display in the Art Gallery alongside an extensive online exhibition which explores the influences and narratives that make up the glass work available to view here.
Amoako-Attah’s work focuses on social, political, and cultural issues that intertwine with his own personal identity through the use of Ghanaian cultural Adinkra symbols and native Kente patterns. ‘Transition’ is series of glass artworks that talk about the artist’s life from childhood dreams through to the realities of life.
