House of African Art Part 2 – Seeing Sounds

Tuesday 1 - Monday 7 October

Following the success of the House of African Art (HAART) launch in March 2019, we are delighted to announce that our second exhibition and event line-up will be between Tuesday 1 – Monday 7 October at Copeland Gallery, Copeland Park, 133 Copeland Road, London, SE15 3SN.

Titled Seeing Sounds, the exhibition will explore the connections between sounds and visual artwork. Whether that’s how sounds and music influence the imagination and therefore creative output or artwork which make or depict sounds through their fluidity or which simply create a feeling of being transported to a vibrant, bustling setting, Seeing Sounds will exhibit works from a selection of visual artists, have evening talks where we will discuss the theme, spoken word poetry performances and live musicians (think jazz, Afrobeats and neo-soul).

Participating visual artists are: Dennis Osadebe, Derrick Ofosu Boateng, Jumoke Sanwo, Williams Chechet and Moufouli Bello.

Here is the schedule for the 7 day show:

Tuesday 1 October (OPENING DAY): the gallery will open to the public from 10am until 7pm for artwork previews. The opening evening will be from 7pm until 10pm, with music and welcome drinks for early arrivals!

Thursday 3 October (TALKS + POETRY NIGHT): the gallery will be open to the public from 10am until 7pm. From 7pm until 10pm, there will be spoken word poetry performances, including a performance by Nate the Lyricist, and talks discussing the theme in the gallery.

Friday 4 October: the gallery will be open to the public from 10am until 8pm.

Saturday 5 October (LISTENING PARTY + LIVE MUSIC NIGHT): the gallery will be open to the public from 10am until 7pm. From 7pm until 10pm, there will be a listening party and live musicians performing in the gallery, including a performance by Alxndr London.
