National Museums of Kenya and The Murumbi Trust present an exhibition of artworks by nine acclaimed women of East Africa, titled “Pioneer Women of the Arts.” The opening ceremony will take place on Sunday, September 9 at 2:00pm, at the Nairobi Gallery in Nairobi, Kenya. The exhibition will highlight works from legendary East African artists Margaret Trowell, Joy Adamson, Magdalene Odundo, Rosemary Karuga, Geraldine Robarts, Robin Anderson, Yony Wai-Te, Nani Croze, and Theresa Musoke, and will be open through December 8, 2018. AMB. Amina C Mohamed, EGH, Cabinet Secretary for Education will lead the ceremony.

The exhibition’s entertainment will be a performance by PAPILLON, a young Kenyan musician and protégé of the world-famous Kenyan musician Ayub Ogada. PAPILLON creates his own instruments based on African instruments thousands of years old and writes his own music in an effort to preserve authentic Kenyan music not influenced by Western rap and hip hop. PAPILLON follows in the footsteps of Kenya’s African Heritage Festival, founded by Alan Donovan, which travels the world with its cast of models, musicians, acrobats, stilt walkers, hair dressers, chefs and others.

Each artist showcased in “Pioneer Women of the Arts” was selected based on the various paths that have paved their existence in the art realm, and their earned acclaim through their unique struggle. These female artists have generated a significant impact on the art and culture of East Africa.
