Galerie Mikael Andersen
Sonja Ferlov Mancoba and Ernest Mancoba at Aicon, New York
Sonja Ferlov Mancoba | Ernest Mancoba, is an important and timely exhibition that considers the creative impulses of two artists that were instrumental in founding the CoBrA avant-garde art movement. It will be the first major show in the United States of Sonja Ferlov Mancoba and the second of Ernest Mancoba (following the very successful first solo of the artist at Aicon Gallery in February, 2017). Sonja Ferlov Mancoba | Ernest Mancoba is the first exhibition of the two artists since their Centre Pompidou 2019 show (June 26 to September 29, 2019).
The exhibition juxtaposes a suite of canvases and drawings with a series of inspired sculptures tracing both artists’ heritage – Danish and South African respectively – and recording the profound influence they had on each other’s work. Aicon Art’s show is in generous partnership with Galerie Mikael Andersen, Copenhagen and the Ferlov Mancoba Estate.
