Michael Armitage

You, Who Are Still Alive
Exhibitions
From
until
Kenyan-born artist Michael Armitage (* 1984) creates 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figurative paintings draw equally from past and current events, recollections and mythology, popular culture and art historical references. What results are haunting and provocative reflections on politics, history, civil unrest, and humanity.
