Exhibition: Mwanamke ni Effort by James Njoroge, Nov. 6-30 2013 @ National Museum

Mwanamke ni Effort Cover
Exhibition Dates: 6th-30th November 2013 at the Nairobi National Museum
Entry: Museum Rates Apply

Barely six months after graduating from Kenyatta University James Njoroge, holds his first solo exhibition at The Prestigious Nairobi National Museum. The show is a tribute to his mother and to all Kenyan women who toil selflessly for their families.
Njoroge’s collection for this exhibition is a linear autobiography of his life brought up by a single mother. His works track the life of ‘mama soko’, her triumphs and travails.
Njoroge’s women are burdened – burdened by pitiable circumstances, burdened by errant husbands, burdened by single parenthood and fleeting youth; they are also somewhat faceless, marginalised by State and Men. In truth they are the back bone of Africa and Njoroge’s works force us to look at them, to value them, to acknowledge them.
