Saatchi Yates opens a temporary gallery space in Miami, with a solo exhibition of new work by Ethiopian Contemporary artist Tesfaye Urgessa to coincide with his presentation at the Rubell Museum, Miami opening December 2022. Saatchi Yates Miami is situated in the Design District, next to the Institute of Contemporary Art and the de la Cruz Collection. Tesfaye Urgessa was born in 1983 and lives and works in Germany, having emigrated from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Urgessa studied under master Tadesse Mesfin in Ethiopia, and later graduated from the Staatlichen Akademie in Stuttgart. Through these experiences, Ugressa was able to connect Ethiopian iconography and a deep fascination with traditional figurative painting to create a unique and striking language. Urgessa’s subject matter recalls intertwined representations of race and the politics of identity.
