Issue 042 – Kampala Art Biennale
Biennale, Biennale, Biennale. Like a war-cry, the artist of Africa have something to say. This time they will be shouting out from the streets and galleries of Kampala. In a push to showcase Kampala on the global arts agenda, a group of established artists teamed up with national government bodies, media specialists and city authorities to bring a Biennale to East Africa’s arts castaway. Sure, Nairobi is the known hub for contemporary arts in the region, but it was actually in Dar es Salaam that the first East African Art Biennale was staged. This month, Start Journal will cover the first Kampala Art Biennale and see what all the fuss is about.
