This publication will focus on the Alphabet Bété, widely considered to be the central work of Frédéric Bruly Bouabré’s oeuvre, recently acquired by MoMA, and the focal point of the upcoming 2022 exhibition. In addition to a deep dive into the Alphabet, the text would also serve as an introduction to Bouabré’s life and practice, with references to numerous other works that will be included in the exhibition.
