After Dune by Adebusola Ramsay

Guest curator, Sekai Machache has been invited by GENERATORprojects to curate their Summer Residency programme with an exhibition showcasing the work of other black women artists based in Scotland.

Adebusola Ramsay is an abstract artist, whose practice has developed as a therapeutic endeavour over the last 20 years; features evocative colour composition and textural detail, mostly with acrylic medium, exploring different forms of mark-making. Influenced by patterns and symbols, in particular weave/pattern-making of African cloths such as Aso-Oke, Kente and Adire. After Dune revisits a painting from 15 years ago titled Dune.

The Summer Residency will open up part of the GENERATORprojects space as a pop up studio for Adebusola to work in throughout the run of the exhibition. There will be opportunities to meet the artist allowing visitors to engage with her as she continues to work on her series.

All other external contributions to the programme will be provided by fellow Yon Afro Collective members: Christian Noelle Charles, Ashanti Harris and Alberta Whittle. Preview Friday 9th August 6 – 9pm
