Michael Armitage and the Ghosts of Past Picturing

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

In comparison to the historical recentness of mediums like video and installation, painting comes freighted with heavy histories, traditions, and pedagogies. This complicated heritage is taken up by the British-Kenyan artist Michael Armitage whose paintings respond to contemporary issues and events in Kenya through the ghosts of past picturing.
