Kenyan artists to feature at Harlem’s ‘The Shadows Took Shape’


We are so proud of our Kenyan compatriots who are going to be part of Harlem’s ‘The Shadows Took Shape’.  This is a dynamic interdisciplinary exhibition exploring contemporary art through the lens of Afrofuturist aesthetics.

A total of twenty-nine artists featured in ‘The Shadows Took Shape’ work in a wide variety of media, including photography, video, painting, drawing, sculpture and multimedia installation.

Cyrus Kabiru will be showcasing his unique glasses from the C-Stunners collection, while Wangechi Mutu will have her great art media work on display. Wanuri Kahiu will have her short sci-fi film, Pumzi included as part of this celebration.

‘The Shadows Took Shape’ will run from November 14, 2013 until March 9, 2014 at The Studio Museum in Harlem.  It is definitely one worth seeing.
