@MoMA

Now on view thru August 13th, “Frederic Bruly Bouabre: World Unbound” explores the magnificent work of Cote d’Ivoire’s best-known artist and his engagement in cultural, regional elements that characterized his devotion in depicting his people’s daily struggles. Spanning the artist’s immense production from the 70’s till his death in ’14, the exhibition features a varied range of drawings, paintings, writings and a curious invention: the Alphabet Bete- the first writing system used by the ethnic group to which the artist belonged. Bouabre constantly worked on topics such as democracy, women’s rights, economical struggles and folklore. MoMA is located at 11 West 53rd Street, between 5th and 6th Ave. INFO: www.MoMA.org
