FRIDAY 11th JANUARY – WEDNESDAY 6th FEBRUARY 2019

‘Borrowed Tales’ is an exhibition of printworks derived from on a series of narratives collected by Clinton from people of Kenya. The work explores the ancestral, the personal and the fictional and Clinton travelled across the country in 2016 recording the stories told to him along the way. The body of prints he created in response to these tales was presented back to the people in The Nairobi Museum in summer 2018 and were gifted back to the permanent collection.

The exhibition opens with a reception on Thursday 10th January at 7pm and runs until Wednesday 6th February 2019.
