Press release

Almine Rech Brussels is pleased to present BLACK RODEO: Cowboys of the 21st Century, the European solo exhibition debut of Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe. BLACK RODEO: Cowboys of the 21st Century features several new large format paintings from Quaicoe’s Black Cowboy series that brings to the forefront the untold stories of the Black American cowboy. Known primarily as a painter, Quaicoe will also present for the first time sculptures as an expansion of his work on the series. The works featured in BLACK RODEO are a result of rigorous cultural investigation and the continued experimentation with figurative forms accented with bold colors and rich texture that has become the signature of Quaicoe’s artistic practice. Taking inspiration from his childhood affinity for cinema, in particular “Spaghetti Westerns”, Quaicoe wanted to unearth the erasered stories of Black American cowboys. The exhibition is on view from March 10th to April 14th, 2022, at the gallery’s Rue de l’Abbaye space in Brussels, Belgium.

- Larry Ossei-Mensah, curator and co-founder of Artnoir.
