Cassi Namoda (b. 1988 Maputo, Mozambique) is a painter and performance artist who explores the intricacies of social dynamics through vivid scenes that intermingle the heartfelt with the absurd, the quotidian with the cosmic, the joyous with the macabre. Born in Maputo to a Mozambican mother and American father, Namoda negotiates the intricacies of mixed cultural heritage in her work, intricacies that reflect the wider cultural dynamics of a formerly colonized nation in an increasingly globalized world.
François Ghebaly is proud to present Cassi Namoda’s ‘You’ll be old too one day. Life isn’t always young and sweet.’, an exhibition of new paintings presented online in conjunction with June Art Fair. The works are also on view at the gallery in Los Angeles to be experienced in person, in person from August 20 - September 20, 2020.
François Ghebaly presents an innovative, eclectic program of Los Angeles-based and international artists demonstrating a commitment to showcasing work across all media and to fostering progressive, boundary-pushing practices. With a history of championing diverse voices and emerging talent, the gallery’s roster includes 15 artists and 2 artist estates. The gallery advances the reach of its artists’ visions by publishing exhibition catalogues and producing artist editions.
