In celebration of Kenya at 50 years, six artists explore what freedom means to them both as artists as well as Kenyans in an economically emerging continent. The artists express the concept of freedom using a multitude of media with minimal constraints or parameters producing a body of work that provokes us to think of what freedom means to us as Kenyans 50 years after Independence.
TheLabyrinth art exhibition showcases 50 years of Art in Kenya at the Belgian Residence. More than 130 works of art from 12 artists working in Kenya are displayed to show the exceptional artistic qualities of some of the main actors of the Kenyan cultural scene.
