On 21 September at Gallery 1957 in Accra, the Nuku Festival will close – with an exhibition opening.

Founder’s Day is perfect timing to open the exhibition “Life According to James Barnor”. It will showcase Barnor’s photographs of Ghana and the United Kingdom from 1948 to 1980. The exhibition is organised in collaboration with Gallery 1957 and Galerie Clémentine de la Féronnière, and supported by Institut Français, Alliance Française Accra, and the Embassy of France in Accra.

The open event will also include an Art Talk and a closing reception.
