Norval Foundation patrons, members and the public are invited to an exhibition recepetion and first viewing of Accomplice: Michael Armitage. 

This exhibition, the first in Africa, includes a cycle of eight oil paintings and a selection of preparatory ink drawings created by the artist since the 2017 Kenyan elections. In this series, presented for the first time in its entirety, Armitage filters representations of the Kenyan body politic through his own oneiric vision. Observations of contemporary Nairobi, and images culled from social and broadcast media, form the basis of a conversation with Western figurative painting and East African modernism.
