Ângela Ferreira / Pan African Unity Mural

2018-11-16 - 2019-05-19

Artist Ângela Ferreira is interested in post-colonial issues and how architecture and environments bear traces of history, politics and ideology. In her exhibition Pan African Unity Mural, she presents murals and sculptures in different spaces inside and outside Bildmuseet.

What is a home, and what does belonging mean to a person who is constantly on the move? In her exhibition, Ferreira references South African singer Miriam Makeba and the US fugitive George Wright, interweaving their life stories with her own. The title of the exhibition refers to a mural which Ferreira created together with thirteen other artists in 1986-87 in Cape Town, South Africa, in protest against the apartheid regime.

Ângela Ferreira (b. 1958 Mozambique) is based in Lisbon, Portugal. She has exhibited in many parts of the world, but this is her first solo exhibition in Scandinavia. The exhibition was produced by Bildmuseet in collaboration with MAAT in Lisbon.
