From the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston:
“About the Exhibition
Amoako Boafo: Soul of Black Folks is the debut museum solo exhibition for Ghanaian artist Amoako Boafo (b. 1984). Working primarily in portraiture, Boafo is known for his vibrant use of color and improvisational tactile finger painting technique on his subject’s skin. His work actively centers Black subjectivity, Black joy, the Black gaze, and radical care. This is co-organized with Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) in San Francisco. Its presentation in Houston will include new and recent works created between 2016–2022, including site-specific wall painting made for CAMH.
Amoako Boafo: Soul of Black Folks is organized and presented in partnership with the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), San Francisco and Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. The exhibition is curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah.
Support for Amoako Boafo: Soul of Black Folks is provided by Louise Jamail, with additional support from Glenn and Debbie August, Jeffrey Childers and Onay Gutierrez, Scott and Judy Nyquist, and Anita and Gerald Smith.
Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston is funded in part by the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.”
