Join renowned Professor Ablade Glover for an in-depth discussion about his artistic practice and his latest exhibition, 'Inner Worlds, Outer Journeys', with Chili Hawes, Director of October Gallery.


In celebration of the artist’s 90th birth year, the talk will explore Glover’s arc of development and how this prominent artist and educator helped shape the current course and future pathways of Ghanaian art.

The conversation, moderated by Gerard Houghton, Director of Special Projects, will delve into the historical relationship between the gallery and this exceptional artist. In 1982, Ablade Glover was the first artist from sub-Saharan Africa to exhibit at October Gallery. Since then, the Gallery has devoted ten solo shows to the colourful and always energetic canvases of this acclaimed master of oil-on-canvas painting.
