This is Emanuel Tegene’s first solo exhibition. He studied at the Ale School of Fine Art before leaving to work in Israel for two years. His graffiti-like figures, some of which carry serial numbers reminiscent of concentration camp victims have a disturbing quality about them.
The exhibition is curated by Ethiopian photographer Aida Muluneh. In 2010 she won the CRAF International Award of Photography, partly in recognition of her work to establish photography educational opportunities for young Ethiopians, both at home and abroad. Her work has been shown in the National Museum of African Art in Washington, DC.
