In Accra, capital city of Ghana, the African art advisor Adora Mba has opened a new contemporary art gallery dedicated to emerging artists from Africa and its diaspora.

ADA \ contemporary art gallery will support fresh talent by offering early-career artists the opportunity to present a comprehensive portfolio of their work in dedicated solo exhibitions, as well as a programme of site-specific commissions, creative and philanthropic partnerships with local actors, and international art fairs, with an online experience to complement the physical exhibitions.


“I see ADA \ as both a manifest to and actor in the nurturing of a two-way dialogue between the local and international artistic communities,” said gallery founder, Adora Mba. “Ultimately, I envision the gallery embodying this very conversation by taking part in global projects and events which, in conjunction with the Accra space, allow these evolving bridges to permanently materialize.”


The inaugural exhibition in the 850m2 space features Nigerian artist Collins Obijiaku (b.1995) in “Gindin Mangoro: Under the Mango Tree”, running until November 19.
