Diaspora Dialogue: Art of Kwabena Ampofo-Anti, Alexander "Skunder" Boghossian and Victor Ekpuk

Join the UMUC community for Diaspora Dialogue, an exhibition featuring the works of African born artists Kwabena Ampofo-Anti, Alexander Boghossian and Victor Ekpuk.

Born in Ghana, Kwabena Ampofo-Anti is a master artist and art educator. His ceramic sculptures are inspired by African architecture and attempt to create a sanctuary through which the ancestors can communicate their "presence" to the present.

The late Alexander "Skunder" Boghossian was one of Ethiopia's most outstanding artists. He studied in London and Paris and taught at Howard University. Boghossian created his artwork using a variety of techniques and materials, such as mixed media, oils, and brush and ink.

Nigerian-born Victor Ekpuk is a well-published artist who is inspired by the secretive writing language of his country. He creates universal themes in his art to communicate contemporary human experiences and conditions.
