Larry Ossei-Mensah: Art Surviving Imperialism

Mark Rappolt interviewing Larry Ossei-Mensah for ArtReview

ArtReview sat down with the curator of Ghosts of Empires II to discuss diasporic communities, art economics and unexpected connections


Ghosts of Empires II, currently on show at Ben Brown Fine Arts in London (through 22 October) gathers work by 14 artists from or with diasporic connections to countries that have experienced various forms of colonialism. It seeks to explore what they share and to highlight the ways in which they have thrived and survived imperialism. ArtReview caught up with the exhibition’s curator Larry Ossei-Mensah to discuss some of the show’s themes.
