Arts & culture, every day.



Gideon Appah: Forgotten, Nudes, Landscapes

Tuesday, May 24 at 10:00am to 5:00pm

More dates through June 19, 2022

Forgotten, Nudes, Landscapes merges painter Gideon Appah's interest in Ghanaian popular culture with his own imagination, dreams, and fantasies. Newspaper clippings, entertainment posters, and films spanning the 1950s through the ’80s become source material for Appah’s explorations of the rise and fall of Ghanian cinema and leisure culture. The cycle of cultural memory—from heyday to bygone—is depicted in a series of portraits of illustrious and forgotten figures.

Forgotten, Nudes, Landscapes is curated by ICA Curator Amber Esseiva. This exhibition was produced with the support of Mitchell-Innes & Nash, New York.
