Would you like to visit IMMA for a public conversation with renowned West African artist Romauld Hazoume?
In addition to the ‘Pathways to Africa’ concert, Irish Aid is supporting a whole host of Africa Day events around the country over the coming fortnight. The first of these will take place tomorrow evening (Friday, 20th May) at 5pm at the The Chapel in the Irish Museum of Modern Art. African curator and writer Yacouba Konate will host a public conversation with leading West African artist Romauld Hazoume, who was born and continues to live in the Republic of Benin and whose work is deeply rooted in the culture and traditions of West Africa.
This public conversation is taking place in conjunction with an extended solo exhibition of Hazoume’s work at IMMA. The conversation will be followed by a wine reception. Admission is free, but booking is essential. To book a place now, just click here.
