Kenya’s & Uganda’s must-see contemporary artists.
Contemporary Art meaning “the art of today,” more broadly includes artwork produced during the late 20th and early 21st centuries. It generally defines art produced after the Modern Art movement to the present day. Regularly in English “modern” and contemporary are synonyms.
But Unfortunately this doesn’t apply when we talk about art. In art this are two completely different terms. The term Modern Art is usually associated with art made during the period extending roughly between the 1860s and 1970s. Contemporary artists explore ideas, concepts, questions and practices of the past with the aim to understand the present and envision the future.
Sometimes, it is due to the diversity of these approaches that Contemporary Art is often viewed as lacking a uniform organized principle or ideology. With the history said let dive into the this exhibition’s matter
