Konaté is known for his figurative and abstract textile compositions, which balance political and social reflections with an exploration of formal colour composition. On view will be his monumental work Brésil (Guarani); spanning 7 metres, its inspiration came from a stay in the Amazon where the artist observed the cultural parallels between the Guarani peoples and the Malian tribes of his homeland.
