Samson Flounder. New Liberia

The Oxford Museum of Contemporary Art hosts an exhibition Samson Flounder. New Liberia ".

The largest solo exhibition and impressive installation by Samson Kambalu create the atmosphere of an initiation ceremony into the utopia of international racial justice that values everyone equally. This "New Liberia" idea marks a massive change in attitudes fueled by the pandemic and global Black Lives Matter protests in 2020.

Based on three centuries of philosophy, social pioneers of sociology and culture, the playful exhibition Flounder balances color, humor and intelligence. Combining videos, images, texts and sculptures, the exhibition exudes what the artist is famous for: his vivid imagination and outstanding creativity. “New Liberia has arisen as a result of a time lag between aspects of Malawian modernist culture of the early 20th century and various liberation social and political movements.” - Samson Kambalu.

Based on site materials Museum of Modern Art, Oxford.
