Jul 28 - Sep 15, 2019
In the 17th century, on the coast of what is now modern-day Ghana, the Fante people developed a new tradition, commencing a visual practice today considered as one of the most vivid and celebratory of 20th century Africa.
These are Asafo flags: 'asa' meaning war, 'fo' meaning people. They are symbols and allegories, conjured from folk tales and proverbs across the region.
Asafo flags continue to inspire many of the world’s artists, curators and designers. The works on display feature vintage flags from a number of key collections, including that of author and enthusiast, Peter Adler.

AUTOBIOGRAPHIC : CARLO ZINELLI, VALERIE POTTER
Jan 12 - Mar 15, 2020
'Autobiographic' explores the aesthetic diaries of two authors from the alternative history of 20th century art. Carlo Zinelli is the celebrated Italian image-maker, introduced to La Collection de l’Art Brut in 1963 by Professor Vittorino Andreoli, and championed by Andre Breton and Jean Dubuffet. Valerie Potter is a British illustrator and textile artist, whose idiosyncratic production of combined image and text was promoted by Monika Kinley and Roger Cardinal, the latter giving her work a significant platform in his seminal publication, Outsider Art (1972). This exhibition has been made possible in collaboration with La Fondazione Culturale Carlo ZInelli and Jennifer Lauren Gallery.
