Aboudia Abdoulaye Diarrassouba (2011)

Opening this Wednesday is an exhibition by the Ivorian painter Aboudia Abdoulaye Diarrassouba. During the violence that followed last year’s disputed presidential elections in Côte d’Ivoire, rather than fleeing with the masses, Aboudia took cover in a basement studio in the capital city of Abidjan and began to paint what he saw; as he has explained, he painted partly in order to record events for posterity, but mostly just for himself. The results are now on show in a solo exhibition at Jack Bell gallery, the artist’s first outside his home country.

Private view: 22nd June, 7-9
w/ Live set by Vamanos (Ghetto Bassquake / Secousse Sound System)

Show: 23rd June – 1st September

Opening hours:
Wed-Sat, 12-6

Jack Bell Gallery
