When I was in primary school I didn’t like pets at all, especially dogs and cats. That’s because they were the only pets we had in our house. Everyone but my dad didn’t like them. They were messy, and an added responsibility to our already many house chores. For me, I think it’s because I was once bitten by a dog. Sometimes we’ll forget to feed them or give them water, and my dad will get angry for days, sometimes to the extent of not talking to us. One day my brothers and I returned from school, and saw three puppies in the house. Later that day my dad returned from work and shared the puppies to us. He said taking care of them was our responsibility and he was monitoring who amongst us will be able to take good care of his. It was literally a competition between me and my two brothers. We did well... 🤷🏿‍♂️🤷🏿‍♂️! One of my brothers lost his. And when we were moving from Sunyani to Accra, mine left home and so we came without him. The last one went missing in Tema, community 18. Now my friend @afrogallonism loves pets. He likes to have them around him and he be around them. Serge is actually good at taking care of animals. Something I think I’m learning, but it will take time. We spent some time with his dogs Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale and Wendy Shay at his Afrogallonism art house this afternoon. . . 📷: Nana Osei - 2018 . . . #accra #ghana #africa #dogs #pet #cats #afrogallonism #sergeattukweiclottey #art #arthouse #streetstyle #streetphotography #animalphotography #storytelling #tema #sunyani #accrawedey #everydayafrica #dynamicafrica #ashantiimmigrant #accrawedey #kponekatamanso

Defying the Narrative: Contemporary Art from West and Southern Africa At Evergold Projects @evergoldprojects #sanfrancisco Until October 27 Takunda Regis Billiat, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, Serge Attukwei Clottey, Paa Joe, Troy Makaza, Wycliffe Mundopa, Gareth Nyandoro, Simphiwe Ndzube, Gresham Nyaude, Irvin Pascal, Cameron Platter, Julio Rizhi, Nicola Roos, and Moffat Takadiwa. Ever Gold [Projects] is pleased to present Defying the Narrative: Contemporary Art from West and Southern Africa, a group exhibition featuring work by 14 African artists. This exhibition’s intent is to begin to present the varied directions of contemporary African art to the Bay Area. Defying the Narrative includes artists working in a wide variety of media from diverse backgrounds. Collectively, their work defies the reductive Western conception of Africa as a monoculture and of African artists as working in isolation without access to art history and technology, among other falsities. We believe that resisting this impulse to apply familiar or conventional understandings of contemporary and historical African art gives the viewer an opportunity to experience this work in a more dynamic and holistic way. Some of the artists featured in Defying the Narrative have exhibited widely, and some are emerging artists. Frédéric Bruly Bouabré and Paa Joe were both featured in the groundbreaking 1989 exhibition Magiciens de la Terre at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Many of the artists are interested in making commentary on the state of the environment and the impacts of pollution. For example, despite very different practices, one could say that Serge Attukwei Clottey, Julio Rizhi, and Moffat Takadiwa are similarly concerned with ideas around migration of materials and the politics that underlie these movements. Some of the work references traditional African forms and techniques by reconfiguring historic structures with new materials.
When art brings a strong message and has an impact on people’s lives, this is #sergeattukweiclottey #afrogallonism #africanart #art #streetart #ghana #accra
