Kuli Village of Ghana: A Journey of an Artist
In this artist talk, Malene Barnett, shares a documentary style, photographic journey of her most recent visit to Ghana, West Africa with Winnie Owens Hart. Through her photographs, she will share her experience of working alongside side Ewe women of Kuli, while learning hand-building processes and firing techniques. The experience, the craftsmanship of the Ewe potters and photographs will reinvigorate your connection to your clay practice.

Born in the Bronx, Barnett was raised along the Norwalk coastline of Connecticut on a diet of soca, reggae and Caribbean folktales. She started painting at an early age and then went on to explore textile design and study fashion illustration and surface design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Barnett established her New York-based atelier Malene B in 2008. Her work has been featured in publications such as Interior Design, New York Magazine and House Beautiful, and can be found in Saks Fifth Avenue, WeWork NYC and NBC Telemundo Miami, just to name a few. Barnett was a GHP artist in residence September 24 to December 7, 2018.

This event is free and open to the public.
