This exhibition by Samuel Derbyshire in collaboration with the Pit Rivers Museum, Oxford, showcases a selection of historical photographs taken in Turkana at various different times throughout the last century. Prints of these historical photographs were recently brought back to southern Turkana as part of a visual repatriation project, where they were used in interviews and group discussion sessions to explore the recent history of the region at various different locations.
The exhibition also encompasses photographs taken during this recent project, showing the historical photographs being discussed by the friends and relatives of the people they contain.
What does an exhibits designer do after retirement? Patrick Milenye Adoyo knows exactly what he wants to do and that is to make a career out of his greatest passion – art. The former head of Exhibits section of the National Museums of Kenya is not new to the art scene having exhibited several times in different spaces locally and internationally. Colourful market scenes and busy baiskols are very Adoyo but it is in the heart warming countryside compositions with cheerful themes that his passion for what he does is most evident. Designing museum spaces and developing exhibitions is as challenging as it is fulfilling, a life skill for the design professional, fine artist, leader, and now elder as he goes out to face his passion.
Patrick Adoyo’s exhibition will be at the Banana Hill Art Gallery until July 29 2016.
Until: July 31, 2016
