Forgotten, Nudes, Landscapes (February 19–June 19, 2022) merges painter Gideon Appah’s interest in Ghanaian popular culture with his own imagination, dreams, and fantasies. Newspaper clippings, entertainment posters, and films from the mid-20th century become source material for Appah’s explorations of the rise and fall of Ghanian cinema and leisure culture. The cycle of cultural memory—from heyday to bygone—is depicted in a series of portraits of illustrious and forgotten figures.
