Accomplice-Michael-Armitage

Accomplice – Michael Armitage presented by the Norval Foundation hosts the exhibition reception and first viewing of the Kenyan artist’s work.

This exhibition, the first in Africa, includes a cycle of eight oil paintings completed on traditional Lubugo bark cloth and a selection of preparatory ink drawings created by the artist since the 2017 Kenyan elections. Armitage filters representations of the Kenyan body politic through a oneiric vision.

The series of work includes observations of contemporary Nairobi, images culled from social and broadcast media, form the basis of a conversation with Western figurative painting and East African modernism.

The event times are 10am to 11am – Members’ Only Preview, 11am – Exhibitions Open, 11.30am – Michael Armitage in conversation with Chief Curator, Owen Martin in the Atrium.

Cost: Museum Admission R180 | Free Admission every first Thursday of the month
