KLA ART 014

KLA ART 014 ist Kampalas zweijährliches Festival für zeitgenössische Kunst. Im Laufe des Monats Oktober werden auf dem Festival zeitgenössische Künstler aus Uganda und den Nachbarländern Ugandas der Öffentlichkeit vorgestellt.

 
Das diesjährige Thema ist Unmapped. Wer sind die ungehörten Stimmen unserer Städte? Wie können wir den unsichtbaren Stadtbewohner darstellen und feiern?
 
UCK Ausstellung
 
FESTIVAL EXHIBITION: The festival exhibition will showcase a selection of artists from Uganda, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Kenya, Congo, South Sudan and Rwanda; five Ugandan curators, with South African curator Gabi Ngcobo’s curatorial advisory, will work with the artists to unearth, challenge and represent the unmapped, unplanned and unheard artisan traders of these countries’ major cities.  The exhibition will consist of newly commissioned work, created in Kampala specifically for KLA ART 014
 
UCK boda
 
 
THE BODA BODA PROJECT: The Boda Boda Project is a selection of twenty Ugandan artists who will create artworks in, on or with a boda boda motorcycle taxi; one of the most iconic elements of Kampala-life. The boda bodas will drive together through the city of Kampala, stopping at one key location each day to set up a unique temporary exhibition space. The boda boda becomes a vehicle to showcase the latest works of Ugandan artists, mapping the city, engaging directly with the public and showcasing the new and unseen ideas of Uganda’s contemporary artists. 
 
UCLA
 
MAPPING KLA’S ARTIST STUDIOS: An open studios network running throughout the festival will allow visitors to travel through Kampala on a KLA ART 014 matatu to ‘Unmap’ artworks, ideas and creations by Ugandan artists direct from their studio
