OPENING RECEPTION “Threads of Time: Brian Kansiime Lister” at Mitochondria Gallery

April 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

APRIL 13 – MAY 4, 2024: Mitochondria Gallery presents figurative paintings of women in contemplation in “Threads of Time,” a solo exhibition by Ugandan visual artist Brian Kansiime-Lister. Throughout this body of work, Kansiime-Lister portrays his subjects and their surroundings in detail with arresting compositions as he continues to build upon the use of portraiture to reclaim the depiction of Black women in times past. The visual language employed by Kansiime in this work continues to confront the myth of absence, an exclusion of Blackness in periods of history.
