Adora Mba is the founder and director of ADA \ contemporary art gallery, a commercial art space based in Accra, Ghana, committed to representing emerging artists across Africa and its diaspora.
ADA \ contemporary art gallery specializes in the work of emerging artists across Africa and its diaspora. Established in 2020 , ADA\ is committed to nurturing Ghana and the continent’s contemporary art community and to fostering its ties and influence amongst global audiences.
“I’m always looking for artists to evolve with, both professionally and creatively. I like the idea of learning from and growing with each other so that, as the gallery develops, so do the artists. But, there are so many talented artists here, it can sometimes feel overwhelming trying to find the ones that really stand out.” – Mba
ADA \ contemporary art gallery will support fresh talent by offering early-career artists the opportunity to present a comprehensive portfolio of their work in dedicated solo exhibitions, as well as a programme of site-specific commissions, creative and philanthropic partnerships with local actors, and international art fairs, with an online experience to complement the physical exhibitions.
The inaugural exhibition in the 850m2 space features Nigerian artist Collins Obijiaku (b.1995) in “Gindin Mangoro: Under the Mango Tree”, running until November 19.
