White Cube is pleased to present ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ by Ibrahim Mahama, his first exhibition in Hong Kong and Greater China. Featuring a selection of new fabric paintings, the works explore the history of materials, commerce and cultural identity.

Titled after Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel focusing on the Nigerian-Biafran War in the late 1960s, the individual paintings are inspired by the 1970s songs of Fela Kuti, the Pan-Africanist musician and political activist.

For Mahama, this period of independence from colonial British rule across Africa has long been a source of inspiration. As he states: ‘this is an African story, with ideas of freedom beyond the chaos.’
