Jackie Karuti

Jackie Karuti's practice is largely experimental and employs the use of new media through drawings, video, installations 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 the 2017 recipient of the Young Artist Award at the Cape Town Art Fair, an alumna of the Gasworks residency program in London as well as Àsìko, a roaming Pan African art school designed to redress the frequently outdated or non-existent artistic and curatorial curricula at tertiary institutions across Africa.


Karuti has participated in several exhibitions & residencies, both locally & abroad as well as multidisciplinary projects such as curating the Out Film Festival-Nairobi (2016-2018). In 2017 she established the online platform I’ve Been Working on Some MAGIC which seeks to engage Nairobi based visual artists in critical writing, collective curatorial projects as well as sharing audiovisual material. She is participating in Dak’Art 2018, the Dakar Biennale.
