Performance Art/Installation: Between Us by Miriam Syowia Kyambi, Jun. 14-Jul. 19 2014 @ GoDown Art Centre – Dunga Road, Industrial Area
Between Us is an experimental multi-media production by Miriam Syowia Kyambi incorporating live art performance, installation, photography and video taking place over four weeks in Nairobi at The GoDown Art Centre.
The production aims to unravel and examine critically our perception of what is acceptable, what is private and the meaning we impose on what we see, informed by how we are shaped by the society we live in and the conventions we live by.

Mike Kyalo attended Matungulu Boys’ High School in Machakos County. With art not on the school curriculum, Mike formed an art club to pursue his interest which also led to a visit to the GoDown Arts Centre.
Inspired and encouraged by Patrick Mukabi, resident artist at the GoDown Arts Centre, Mike has been mentored by Patrick since leaving school in 2010 and continues to excel at his art. He won the 2012 art competition ‘Experiencing Heritage through Art’ organized by the National Museums of Kenya, and also completed a one month art residency at the Kuona Arts Trust in 2013 courtesy of the Kenya Arts Diary Young Artists Arts Residency.
In this exhibition, Mike presents a series of oil paintings inspired by men at work.
