Ibrahim Mahama was one of our Keynote speakers at Emerging Futures 2018.

Ibrahim Mahama spoke about his own practice as an artist, his career as an academic and his influences in this talk – The Farmer, Land and the Seed. His work focuses on farming in Ghana, the way farming materials travel around the country and the stories attached to them by each previous owner. He talked about the political nature of his work and the importance of having perseverance in the industry.

“There’s always a chance to relearn and challenge your own assumptions about things. It’s never too late to stop something when you think it is not right or it’s not going well, or it’s never too late to start something new”

Ibrahim talks about his own failings and experiences that have humbled him, and helped him improve as a practitioner.
