Vic Mensa, Chance the Rapper in the market for Naïla Opiangah art at Gallery 1957?



Gallery 1957’s exhibitions are always an intriguing creative affair. They’re latest exhibition was no less of a vision than any of their other eclectic ones. Over the weekend Gallery 1957 in collaboration with the Kempinski Hotel’s Gallery III was the center for art tension.

A mostly private, contemporary art-loving crowd showed up for the exhibition of Gabonese artist Naïla Opiangah’s Two or Three Sides of the Same Story exhibition at Gallery III, Kempinski Hotel, Accra.

Opiangah’s solo exhibition featured a series of oil paintings of nude faceless women, each reclined in seemingly soporific positions. Opiangah, who is an architect, expressed that she was grateful that architecture shaping her discipline and artistic innovation.

In a post on her Instagram, Opiangah said, “I am grateful for architecture pushing discomfort and unease. These states led me to seek refuge in my artwork from back in college until today- proudly showing the fruits of my quest.”



Opiangah’ Two or Three Sides of the Same Story had a famous crowd in attendance. American rappers Vic Mensa and Chance the Rapper were among the art enthusiasts present at the exhibition. Are they in for collecting some Opiangah art bonafides? We hope so. Just a few days ago, the two international acts soft launched the Black Star Line Fest; a music and art festival set to be happen in January 2023.

Ghanaian history art curator Rita Mawuena and Nigerian artist Juwon Aderemi who’d also had a Gallery 1957 exhibition early this year, also made special appearances.

Two or Three Sides of the Same Story Exhibition continuous at the Gallery III, Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast Galleria Mall till the 20th of August, 2022.
