Trails: Dickens Otieno's Solo Exhibition

calendar_today Happens Everyday from 29th Nov, 2023 at 6:00PM up to 6th Jan. 2024 place Circle Art Gallery

Overview

Closing our exhibition calendar for the year is the much awaited solo exhibition by Dickens Otieno, Trails. 

Following his debut solo Mabati Tailor at Circle in 2020, we are pleased to present a series of new works, more ambitious in scale and experimental techniques exemplifying not only Dickens technical prowess, but also, the expanding material and visual vocabulary of his work. Known for his sculptural tapestries of woven aluminium and 

three-dimensional garments in the same medium, Dickens engagement with his chosen medium reflects his interest in the way colour, texture, pattern and iconography imbue ordinary objects with meaning and identity. 

Dickens has participated in numerous group exhibitions locally and internationally and has an ever-growing base private and institutional collectors. In 2022, he was one of the artists representing the Kenya Pavilion at the 59th Venice Bienalle. Other group and solo exhibitions include Art Dubai (2023); Mtaani, Steve Turner Gallery, Los Angeles (2021); See Here, Old Neals Auction House, Nottingham, (2018); Africa/Africa, Total Arts Courtyard Gallery, Al Quoz, Dubai, (2018); Young Guns, Circle Art Gallery, Nairobi, (2017); The Third Dimension, Circle Art Gallery, (2016); UNI-FORM MULTI-FORM, Roots Contemporary, Nairobi, (2016); Paint and Metal, National Museum in Nairobi, (2016).
