Based in Accra and working internationally, Gallery 1957 is dedicated to contemporary art. With a curatorial focus on West Africa, the gallery presents a programme by the region’s most significant artists bridging the gap between local and international practices, including Modupeola Fadugba, Serge Attukwei Clottey, Jeremiah Quarshie, Yaw Owusu, Gerald Chukwuma, crazinisT artisT and Godfried Donkor. Founded by Marwan Zakhem in 2016, the gallery has evolved over 15 years of private collecting. Offering both local audiences and international visitors the opportunity to discover artists, their work expands outside the gallery through a public programme that includes talks, residencies, site-specific installations, and supporting cultural initiatives in Ghana and beyond. Recently they have presented a solo show from Serge Attukwei Clottey in a ‘gallery takeover’ at Lawrie Shabibi, Dubai.
