Margaretta wa Gacheru, Arts correspondent for the Nation Media Group, has been writing about visual and performing arts in Kenya for decades.
She curates an exhibition of Kenyan contemporary artists based on her recent publication Creating Contemporary African Art: Art Networks in Urban Kenya: 1960 – 2010.
The publication is a result of her extensive research for her Ph.D in sociology from the Loyola University Chicago.

Opening: September 16, 2014
Venue: Alliance Francaise

Runs Until: October 5, 2014

There is no better person than Margaretta to bear witness to the exponential growth in the credibility and the creativity of Kenyan visual artists, from the first post-independent art gallery (PaayaPaa) to the current networks of high value Kenyan artists.

In this exhibition, Margaretta brings together a selection of artists from different art networks who have contributed to the evolution of Kenyan visual arts and who continue to display the characteristics of Kenyan entrepreneurial spirit: innovative, adaptable, inventive and original, playing their part in the effervescence of the Kenyan visual arts sector.

Artists include: Ancent Soi, Jak Katarikawe, Mary Collis, Kioko Mwitiki, Shine Tani, Patrick Mukabi, Maggie Otieno, Gakunju Kaigwa, Dennis Muragori, Cyrus Nganga, Nani Croze and other.

Mike Kyalo attended Matungulu Boys’ High School in Machakos County. With art not on the school curriculum, Mike formed an art club to pursue his interest which also led to a visit to the GoDown Arts Centre.

Inspired and encouraged by Patrick Mukabi, resident artist at the GoDown Arts Centre, Mike has been mentored by Patrick since leaving school in 2010 and continues to excel at his art. He won the 2012 art competition ‘Experiencing Heritage through Art’ organized by the National Museums of Kenya, and also completed a one month art residency at the Kuona Arts Trust in 2013 courtesy of the Kenya Arts Diary Young Artists Arts Residency.
