Na Chainkua Reindorf, Afroscope, and Diego Araúja: Black Star—The Museum as Freedom, Ghana Pavilion

Artists Na Chainkua Reindorf, Afroscope, and Diego Araúja will present a new exhibition at The Ghana Pavilion of the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.

April 23, 2022 - November 27, 2022

Commissioned by Akwasi Agyeman and under the patronage of Ghana’s President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, artists Na Chainkua Reindorf, Afroscope, and Diego Araúja present installations for a new exhibition, “Black Star - The Museum as Freedom,” at The Ghana Pavilion of the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. With the title of Black Star serving as a multifaceted symbol of African freedom, the artworks push past the boundaries of time and technology. Reindorf uses mythology to create Mawu Nyonu, a fictional secret society of women. Afroscope’s Ashe uses technology to examine water as a spirit that runs through all elements. Araúja’s A Congress of Salt uses the Atlantic Ocean, once a divider of West Africa and its diasporas, to unify the birthplace of a new language. The pavilion exhibition is curated by Nana Oforiatta Ayim and designed by architect DK Osseo Asare.
