Cassi Namoda
Orange Moon Gives Birth


Cassi Namoda (b. 1988, Maputo, Mozambique) is a painter and performance artist based between Los Angeles and East Hampton, New York. Namoda’s work explores contemporary life in Mozambique from a global perspective, intertwining folk sayings and parables with a broader history of Black diasporic images. In figurative portraits, she conveys the simultaneity of joy, pain, tradition and modernity in contemporary African life. Namoda’s recent solo shows include Pippy Houldsworth, London and Nina Johnson Gallery, Miami. Her work has also been included in exhibitions at the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute, New York; the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, New York; CFHILL, Stockholm and Library Street Collective, Detroit. This print is offered as an extension of her show You’ll be old too one day. Life isn’t always young and sweet at François Ghebaly Gallery, Los Angeles.
