Appau Jnr Boakye-Yiadom in conversation with Chrissie Iles, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Curator, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
Appau Jnr Boakye-Yiadom is a British artist who works across multimedia installation and performance, combining archival materials, moving image, photography, ready-made objects, sculpture, and sound to create installations with multilayered references that highlight cultural collisions. His work incorporates film footage and sound fragments and he often collaborates with musicians for live improvisation. Boakye-Yiadom received a bachelor’s degree in fine art painting with honors from the Winchester School of Art and a postgraduate diploma from Royal Academy Schools, London.
