For the inaugural exhibition of its New York gallery, Blain|Southern presents the first US solo exhibition of Malian artist Abdoulaye Konaté.

Widely recognised as one of West Africa’s preeminent artists, Konaté is known for compositions in dyed and woven Malian cotton that combine symbolic references and material associations, and balance global political and social reflections with a reference to his own local and cultural history.

Couleurs d’âme (Soul Colours) focuses on the artist's new abstract work, accompanied by several examples of landmark earlier pieces that illustrate the artist’s progression over time towards purely abstract compositions.
