Jackie Karuti

Jackie Karuti - Film Programme

Jackie Karuti is an artist based in Nairobi, Kenya. Her practice employs the process of drawing, video and performance to generate thought. Her work is founded on ideas around knowledge production and accessibility as well as the depths of possibility enabled by radical imagination. Karuti is an alumnus of Àsìko, a roaming Pan African art school established by the late Bisi Silva, designed to redress the frequently outdated or non-existent artistic and curatorial curricula at tertiary institutions across Africa.

Karuti has had numerous residencies including WIELS; Brussels, Gasworks; London, 32° East; Kampala and exhibited at the Lofoten International Art Festival, 2019; Norway and the Dak’Art Biennale de l’Art Africain Contemporain, 2018; Senegal among other places.  Karuti was the 2020 recipient of the Henrike Grohs Art Award which will see a publication of her work released in late 2021. Further in 2021 she received the Follow Fluxus-After Fluxus grant for young contemporary artists and will have a residency and solo exhibition from September 2021 until January 2022 at the Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden in Germany.
