The Brown University professor’s new book considers the work of contemporary Black artists and the command of their practise
Ethel-Ruth Tawe (b. Yaoundé, Cameroon) is an image-maker, storyteller, and time-traveller based between Ghana and The Netherlands. She is a multidisciplinary artist and writer examining archives and identity in Africa and the diaspora. Using collage, pigments, words, still and moving images, Tawe’s work reflects on space and time, often from a magical realist lens. Her burgeoning curatorial practice took form in an inaugural exhibition titled 'African Ancient Futures', and continues to expand through myriad audiovisual experiments.
