Conrad Egyir – New Work
Born in Ghana and based in Detroit, Conrad Egyir finds biblical and West African folk narratives in the texture of everyday life. For 8-bridges, the artist has created four new multimedia paintings, portraying himself in red and three valued friends in blue, green and yellow. Egyir’s paintings refer to the forms of stamps, postcards, notepads and journals with tabs, as metaphors for the migration and archiving of ideas and imagery.
This coming Thursday, January 28th at 6pm PST, Conrad Egyir talk to Ali Gass (Director of the Institute of Contemporary Art San José) on zoom about his new paintings and his upcoming facade project with ICA San José.
