The Visionary Africa – Art at Work is an itinerant urban exhibition of contemporary African artistic practices organized jointly by the European Commission and the Palais des Beaux-Arts (Centre for Fine Arts) in Brussels, including artist residencies, showcases of local artists, and workshops on art and development in modern urban centers in Africa. As several African countries celebrate their 50th independence anniversary, the Exhibition’s intent is to focus on the importance of culture and creativity as a motor for development. The aim is to further provide, through the work of African artists, a snapshot of transformations that have occurred on the African continent during the last half century, as well as put its future development into perspective.
The exhibition will take place at the Kampala Railway Grounds. It is open to the public and is free of charge.
