Asafo flags exhibition at The Gallery of Everything, London



This exhibition presents the Asafo flags - “asa” meaning war, “fo” meaning people which are symbols and allegories, conjured from folk tales and proverbs. In the 17th century, on the coast of what is now modern-day Ghana, the Fante people developed a new tradition. They organised themselves into military groups - the Asafo; they gave their assemblies numbers; and they used their skill as designers and image-makers to commence a visual practice today considered as one of the most vivid and celebratory of 20th century Africa.
