Arthur Timothy is an architect and painter whose works depict close family members and autobiographical events, specifically in Accra, Ghana where the artist was born, and Sierra Leone, where he lived until the age of 9. The paintings are inspired by small black and white family photographs and are imbued with vibrant colour, added from his memory and imagination, which update and bring life to the original imagery.

GALLERY 1957 | ACCRA  | 16 SEPT – 12 DEC 2023

Gallery 1957 is proud to announce its group exhibition ‘In and Out of Time’ curated by British writer and curator Ekow Eshun opening on 16th September 2023 in Accra.

Drawing from the Ghanaian concept of Sankofa – to return to the past in order to move forward – the exhibition explores African cultural notions of non-linear time and brings together both established and emerging contemporary artists from across Africa and the diaspora. The exhibition gathers new artworks from a range of mediums, including painting, collage and moving image. The show introduces artists who are new to Gallery 1957’s roster, such as Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, Malala Andrialavidrazana, Shiraz Bayjoo, Kenturah Davis, Todd Gray, Eric Gyamfi, Lyle Ashton Harris, Julianknxx, Zanele Muholi and Emma Prempeh, as well as returning artists Gideon Appah, Amoako Boafo, Kwesi Botchway, Serge Attukwei Clottey, Tiffanie Delune, Godfried Donkor, Priscilla Kennedy, Yaw Owusu, and Arthur Timothy.
