ART NEWS – “We are thrilled to announce representation of Gideon Appah,” Marc Glimcher, President and CEO of Pace Gallery, wrote to ARTnews in an email. “This new relationship comes after more than a year of close conversation and time spent watching his incredible practice evolve.” Appah, born in Accra, Ghana in 1987, takes inspiration from Ghanaian popular culture. He studied art at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi and names Yinka Shonibare, Chris Ofili, El Anatsui, and Julie Mehretu as his major influences. Appah’s recent exhibition at Mitchell-Innes & Nash in New York, “More Luck,” was a moment of deep confirmation for Glimcher.
