Kofi Ofori - Politics as Usual
Kofi Ofori - Politics as Usual


August 31 – December 2
Exhibit Cases

Ofori's exhibition harnesses mixed media to explore tacit themes of corruption, deception, ignorance, and a modern moral poverty. Kofi states, "It's easy to point the finger and ignore the importance to stay educated and take responsibility for ourselves in an environment where pointing the finger is generally preferred. Violence and money, or is it violence for money or money for violence? Our future is being destroyed right under our noses with the poor getting poorer and staying uneducated and the rich getting richer. We should all fear the future. Money can't be trusted, neither can mankind."
