The Tingatinga Collection: From simply Genuine to authentic Fake

In this exhibition the Red Hill Art Gallery shows a collection of artworks from the first generation Tingatinga painters: Eduardo Saidi Tingatinga, Kaspar Henrick Tedo, Mandu Adeusi – and Mohamed Charinda and George Lilanga.

Some of these artworks were obtained directly from the artist and others through galleries. Most of the Tingatingas were acquired privately. They purported to be ‘authentic’, however the beauty and simplicity of the paintings prevailed over the certainty of their authenticity. Provenance in this area is rarely certain.

Art and Poetry: Masculinity vs Femininity, Jun. 18 2017 @ Safaricom House, Michael Joseph Centre

Date: June 18th, 2017
Venue: Michael Joseph Centre, Safaricom House

Masculinity & Femininity by cultural instinct are gender assigned: men are masculine, women are not. Masculinity is a male enamored trait, and its admiration also makes it fragile. Femininity is female, soft, needed, but weak. Our social constructs depend on an incorrect gender-binary definition, but masculine and feminine is more dual than we realise. Maybe a single person can be both masculine and feminine – a concept we will be exploring through different art forms during the next Art & Poetry
