Alex Mawimbi: Self-Referential.

 

Over de expositie

Opening 26 Jan 16:00 Performance ‘On the Masaii Market and Ambivalence’ by Alex Mawimbi .
Opening words by Pauline Burmann (AfricanArtsandTheory.nl).

Alex Mawimbi will show drawings,videos and sculptures. The title of the solo is Self-Referential “’I have chosen this because my
drawings are self-referential and although I am a black, African female artist, I find myself akin to the minimalist movement
of the 1960’s, which was largely selfreferential.”
Alex Mawimbi (1981, Kenya.) investigates the hybrid nature of African identity, contesting notions of authenticity. She has worked with western museums to dispel notions of a Unitarian Africa, so often seen in ethnographic exhibitions. She also focuses on gender and female sexuality.
and is inspired by LGBTQ communities whose stories are rarely told.
