Circle was founded in 2012 to provide a highly professional consultancy service to individual and corporate collectors and art institutions and build audiences through curating ambitious pop-up exhibitions. In 2015, we opened our permanent gallery space in Nairobi, aiming to be the foremost exhibition space in East Africa. Our intention is to create a strong and sustainable art market for East African artists by supporting and promoting the most innovative and exciting artists currently practicing in the region. We exhibit carefully curated, challenging and thought-provoking contemporary art and invite guest curators to work with us. Circle collaborates with a diverse group of contemporary artists across East Africa. We participate in international art fairs and engage with the art community by providing a venue for presentations from local and international artists, curators, art critics, collectors and academics.
