      Painting Ethiopia: The Life and Work of Qes Adamu Tesfaw

      August 31, 2007—November 4, 2007

      One artist’s bold innovations of the
      1,500-year-old artistic traditions of the
      Ethiopian Orthodox Church will be on display. His
      subjects range from vivid images of rural and
      urban life in Ethiopia to striking depictions of
      Christianity from an Ethiopian perspective, and
      the political and military exploits of 19th- and
      20th-century Ethiopian rulers. But it is Adamu’s
      unconventional approach—including unusually
      layered, truncated and fused images and
      seldom-considered perspectives—that marks the
      work of this extraordinary painter who has
      transcended the confines of his artistic education.
