When Shall We 3? (Scenes from the life of Njinga Mbandi) (2010) – Kimathi Donkor

Better late than never: I’m slow off the mark with this one, but there’s an intriguing sounding exhibition on at Iniva at the moment called Queens of the Undead, featuring large-scale paintings by artist Kimathi Donkor.

The ‘queens’ in question are heroic women from the history of Africa and its diasporas, whom Donkor celebrates in works which reflect on ‘the undead glory of charismatic black women who each helped define the modern world’. These new commissions are shown alongside earlier works which create thematic dialogues with Western oil painting. 

The show continues until 24th November.

Opening hours: Tues-Fri, 11.00-18.00 (Thurs until 21.00), Sat, 12.00-18.00

  1. Call for traditional figurative painters and contemporary London based fine artists. bit.ly/xs1GEN
