We went down to somerset house to check out the Hassan Hajjaj exhibition, it was really good and nice to see contemporary African art in the flesh, as we usually come across these works online and see they are in NY or Paris.
Described as a homecoming, showcasing his vibrant fusion of contemporary cultures through new and celebrated works.
My favourite part of the exhibition was the ‘My Rock Stars: Volume 2’ which consists of a nine screen installation of distinctively dressed musicians who each occupy a screen and then they take turns to perform.
The clothes and brightly patterned backdrops in each screen have been carefully selected by Hajjaj to highlight each player and their individual performance.
It is on until the new year but hurry down now!
