Kamau Patton

Personal histories, enigmatic codes, and visions of the Apocalypse meet in Kamau Patton’s new exhibit at Machine Project. Equal parts religious rite, glam spectacle and public access television show, Kamau’s installations bring a personal cosmology to bear on existing folk narratives. For this exhibit at Machine, Kamau’s work investigates the media produced of African American cult activity in America, including the 5 Percent Nation, Nuwaubian Nation, and the Black Hebrew Israelites. Also discussed will be the Nature Of The Universe.
