Value
Kuona Trust is delighted to announce the opening of ‘VALUE’, an exhibition by Tahir Karmali, opening on 27th February running through to 13th March 2014.

Tahir’s photography installation, presents a series of provocative images, tastefully used to communicate and express a specific understanding the artist has of ‘Value’.

The artist chooses to use a subject that is laced with cultural and societal taboo. More specifically, Male Sex Workers (MSW) in Nairobi,who continue to present a provocative subject with traces of homosexual implications and male role stereotypes. This exhibition is not simply a display of those in the sex industry, but an active force in articulating, shaping, and contesting the meaning of ‘Value’ in the public sphere.

About the Artist
Tahir Carl Karmali is a Nairobi based photographer and digital & mixed media artist. He started his career in the corporate world but has been constantly in touch with the creative industry, constantly exploring the philosophies of existentialism whether through ink on canvas or the camera lens.
