'Invisible Inventories: An Exhibition Project' at The Nairobi National Museum from afar

'As part of its effort to make its research available to the public and further the debate surrounding Kenyan objects held in foreign institutions, International Inventories Programme  produced an exhibition titled 'Invisible Inventories'. Through contemporary artworks and academic research, the artists and scholars involved in the exhibition project approached the question of how to make objects—which currently reside in institutions within the global North—present again in contemporary Kenya.'  (Source:
