Material Effects brings together six leading artists from West Africa and the diaspora whose work examines the circulation and currency of objects and materials, man-made or otherwise, in our commodity-driven yet increasingly dematerialized world.

Artists Bernard Akoi-Jackson, Jelili Atiku, and Ibrahim Mahama are joined by London-based independent curator Osei Bonsu and exhibition curator Yesomi Umolu to discuss their individual practices and contributions to Material Effects.
