Tour—Michael Armitage. You, Who Are Still Alive

Kunsthalle Basel
Sunday, 22 May

Kenyan-born artist Michael Armitage (*1984) is creating an ambitious group of new works as the focus of his first exhibition in Switzerland. The moody, sumptuously layered, figurative paintings draw equally from past and current events, recollections and mythology, popular culture, and art historical references. The results are haunting and provocative reflections on politics, history, civil unrest, and humanity. There will be an English-language tour of this exhibit by curator Elena Filipovic together with Armitage.
