LA Louver Exhibition: JOJO ABOT: A GOD OF HER OWN MAKING
L.A. Louver is proud to announce our upcoming exhibition JOJO ABOT: A GOD OF HER OWN MAKING, opening 17 January 2024.
A GOD OF HER OWN MAKING is a multimedia experience which brings together the manifold aspects of JOJO ABOT’s ever-expanding oeuvre. Unlimited by categorical confines of genre and medium and enhanced by three discrete activations, this exhibition focuses on the transformative and sacred power of the divine feminine, inspiring conversations around collective elevation and engagement with our spiritual selves.
JOJO ABOT is an interdisciplinary artist, performer, and healer who explores the abilities of new and ancient technologies for universal healing. In her artmaking and ritual, the artist draws from her heritage as an Ewe woman from West Africa and her nomadic lived experiences across Ghana, Copenhagen, the United States, South Africa, Kenya, and elsewhere around the world.
JOJO ABOT was included in L.A. Louver's 2021 exhibition SeenUNseen curated by Alison Saar and has created interdisciplinary works in collaboration with MoMA, the Brooklyn Museum, the Ghana Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia, Frieze Art Fair x Theaster Gates x Prada, Hult Center, Armory Week NYC, Perez Art Museum Miami and many others. JOJO ABOT has toured with Ms Lauryn Hill and played the stages of Afropunk, Roots Picnic, Radio City Music Hall, the Apollo Theater, Kennedy Center, the Greek Theater and more.
