Artist in Focus 2021: Baff Akoto

Artist in Focus 2021: Baff Akoto

Event date: September 20, 2021 - October 2, 2021 Export event

Raised in London and Accra, Baff Akoto is a conceptual artist whose practice spans VR, AR, motion graphics, performance and cinema.  

His work embraces the fluidity of visual grammar and is concerned with notions of plurality, (self) perceptions and the societal implications of human bodily movement (disability, ritual, dance).   

Most recently Akoto's practice explores the artistic potential of Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies as he interrogates how the digital revolution might avoid the same prejudices, exclusions and inequalities which arose from our industrial and colonial eras.

Baff Akoto's Artist in Focus showcase will run from 20th September until 2nd October across our website and social channels.
