By bringing classical training in drawing and sculpture into the digital realm, Abel Tilahun’s work explores the space between traditional and emerging art forms in different cultures and contexts. Currently based in Washington, D.C., Tilahun maintains a studio practice in both the U.S. and Ethiopia, where he was born. In 2014, he led a tour of his exhibition, Interface Effect, at the Alliance Ethio-Francaise for the Curatorial Intensive in Addis Ababa. Tilahun will discuss the transnational nature of his work with ICI’s Renaud Proch and present his practice through recent and upcoming exhibitions and projects.
