Emma Amos & others @ Pippy Houldswoth Gallery
23 May 2019 - 6 July 2019
‘My Kind of Protest’, is an exhibition of works by Emma Amos, Vivian Browne and Chemu Ng’ok. Working across different time periods, each of these artists creates psychologically charged portraits addressing what it means to be a black woman in a society ruled by men. While some of these works date back 60 years, they remain no less relevant in today’s fraught political climate and the three artists share a common, still unresolved and pertinent struggle. This inter-generational exhibition will comprise a rare 1960s oil painting from Vivian Browne’s first major body of work, important historical works by Emma Amos from the 1980s and 1990s, and new paintings by young Kenyan artist Chemu Ng’ok.
