Exhibition: Sex and the City III by Michael Soi, Thom Ogonga & Onyis Martin, Nov. 6-12 2017 @ Alliance Française

Dates: November 6-12, 2017
Venue: Alliance Française

Sex & the City III is an objective look at what the three participating artists – Michael Soi, Thom Ogonga and Onyis Martin are interested in: from courtship, to sex as a tool of uplifting one’s economic status, to same sex relations, as well as the pretence of being liberal.

It looks at the thin line between culprit and victim while re-questioning the subject within the space we line in Nairobi. Sex & The City playfully (in a serious way) explores the burgeoning local sex tools industry, body enhancement and the place of moral institutions in all this.

Ciné-Café Screening: Black Dandy Documentary by Laurent Lunetta & Ariel Wizman, Sept. 28 2017 @ Alliance Française

Date and time: Thu. 28th Sept. at 6.30pm
Venue: Alliance Française

Title: Black Dandy, a political beauty. A documentary by Laurent Lunetta and Ariel Wizman. Distributed by Canal Plus

Black Dandy explores “black dandyism” from the days of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade to today’s masculine chic. It documents historic and contemporary scenes of popular and celebrity culture and everyday life where Black dandies, in the streets of Brooklyn, Johannesburg, London and Paris, are redefining the landscape of ‘black dandyism’ as a blend of detachment and strength, nonchalance and control.
