LAB Launch Party by ART Lab Africa + No Posters Allowed Exhibition by Onyis Martin, Dec. 16-23 2016 @ 523 Riara Road
No Posters Allowed Exhibition: Until December 23, 2016
Time: 11 am – 6 pm
THE LAB will launch its new pop-up space with the solo show exhibition of Onyis Martin, In Conversation (Talking Walls) which will be open to the public from the 17th of December.
Examining identity as an abstract metaphor influenced by consumerism in traditional and contemporary social constructs, the artist questions the methods through which marketing and advertising borrow from traditional gender roles, class and race to then market to an audience increasingly influenced by contemporary values. Appearing weathered by urban environments, some of the walls are covered in paper ads ranging from posters selling global brands to small, local intimate offerings of personal, medical and “voodoo” services. Subliminal messages alongside the phrases “Man Up”, “Security Video Recording”, “No Posters Allowed” portray heightened tensions and changes in society and cultural codes in a fast developing economy.
Informed by his surroundings, Onyis’ paintings transcend their specificity and are representative of shifting contemporary and traditional values witnessed daily in rapidly urbanising spaces.
Saturday December 17 to Friday December 23 | 11:00 – 18:00
