“Man, I got Summer hating on me ‘Cause I'm hotter than the Sun. Got Spring hating on me 'cause I ain't never sprung. Winter hating on me 'cause I'm colder than y'all. And I will never, I will never, I will never fall. I’m being hated by the seasons. So fuck y'all who hating for no reason” Lil Wayne (2008).

@afrodistrictpa is setting up a new space that will serve as an art studio, and also a shared working environment where other artists can use whenever they are in need of a place to work. Over the years the availability of spaces has become a concern for creatives in Accra. Some artists believe the inadequacy is a reason why most artists/creatives and their works are not known. This is the same reason why @afrogallonism and his GoLokal collective started performing in public spaces, including the streets and beaches. @afrogallonism calls this action “public space hijacking” and refer to the collective as “public space hijackers”. Conversations about maximizing the use of public spaces by artists and other creatives as such contributed to the creation of the Chale Wote Street Art Festival in James Town, Accra. For Yayra, the availability of spaces is very important to the artistic practice of every artist. On the relevance of space to the artists, he says, “For me, space is the one on the key elements in the practice of every artist, irrespective of what one does. I say this because art is about time, and without space you won’t be able to do what you’ve set out to do within the time frame you fixed for yourself. For example, I need a space for my production process, and also display my work. That will enable people to come see it, experience it and review it.” . . 📷: Nana Osei - 2018 . . #nungua #teshienungua #accra #ghana #africa #art #contemporaryart #artist #stylist #fashion #publicspace #afrogallonism #afropresentism #chalewote #streetstyle #streetphotography #ashantiimmigrant #everydayafrica #dynamicafrica #golokal #accrawedey #spaces #afrodistrictpa
@Gallery1957 artist Serge Attukwei Clottey (@afrogallonism ) is featured on @BBC ’s programme ‘In The Studio’. For his latest commission, he is the only African artist to create artwork for Facebook’s new headquarters in San Francisco. Serge discusses the importance of using the yellow gallon containers in his immersive work which covers the streets of Accra: “I thought about how the gallons are imported from the west as cooking oil… Because I’m interested in migration, I look at ‘afro’, a colonial word for African migrants.” #gallery1957 #afrogallonism #InTheStudio #contemporaryafricanart

Have you seen Serge Attukwei Clottey’s “Ahead of Time?” Stop by the Margaret E. Mooney Hall anytime to check out this sculpture constructed of yellow gallon containers. Clottey created this work, and others like it, by cutting, drilling, stitching, and melting found materials to create bold assemblages that act as a means of inquiry into the languages of form and abstraction. Clottey refers to these works as “Afrogallonism,” which is also happens to be his Instagram handle. . Serge Attukwei Clottey, “Ahead of Time,” 2015, plastic, wire, and oil paints, 89 x 59 in.
