‘This No Be Art’ literally means ‘This is not art’ in Ghanaian Pidgin. ‘This no be art’ is the Ghanaian version of the kind of statement one may hear in a museum, an exhibition opening, in galleries and other venues promoting Contemporary Art.
Our aim is to promote African Contemporary Art, especially West African Contemporary Art, making it accessible and intelligible to all, with no distinction of age, social background, sex or race.
“Art is a fluent matter so let’s go beyond localization of ideas, because thoughts are global. Besides, Africa is not blackness and blackness is also not Africa, but global. Let’s look at the different narratives that exist in history.” Koyo Kouoh

We conceptualise and organise contemporary art exhibitions. This includes identifying and contacting artists, selecting and collecting artworks, supervising mounting, etc.
