Jackie Karuti is an artist based in Nairobi, Kenya. Her practice employs the use of new media through drawings, video and performance art. Her work is founded on ideas around knowledge production & accessibility as well as the depths of possibility enabled by radical imagination. Karuti is an alumnus of Àsìko, a roaming Pan African art school established by the late Bisi Silva, designed to redress the frequently outdated or non-existent artistic and curatorial curricula at tertiary institutions across Africa. Karuti’s work has been exhibited widely most recently in 2019 at The Lofoten International Art Festival in Svolvær, Norway as well as at the Dak’Art Biennial in Senegal in 2018. She has also been awarded the Henrike Grohs Art Award 2020. Other projects that respond to her practice include In The Case of Books, programming the Out Film Festival-Nairobi and her online workspace, I’ve been working on some MAGIC.
