AFRICA AT VENICE / Uganda Pavilion
Uganda’s first national pavilion, entitled ‘Radiance – They Dream in Time’, received special mention at the 59th Golden Lions at la Biennale de Venezia. Shaheen Merali, Tanzanian-born British Curator, exhibited works of Kampala-based artist Acaye Kerunen and Collin Sekajugo.
Merali says, “‘Radiance – They Dream in Time’ refers to the essential knowledge and lived experiences of Kerunen and Sekajugo in speaking to the many different territories of Uganda, as well as to urban trade and living conditions in its urban centres. Both artists have been actively working with formal and informal archives of Uganda’s dynamic visual culture.”
AFRICA AT VENICE series is presented by ART AFRICA, African Power Station and Africa First.
