On the 59th Venice Art Biennale occasion, AKKA Project presents “African Identities“. This group exhibition aims to highlight the importance of the Arts and Artists from the African Continent.
The first edition of “African Identities” focuses on exploring the art scene of East Africa. Counting on so many different ethnic groups and cultures, talents, and styles, AKKA Project aims to present and gather these many artists, including established and young talents, under one roof, giving them an opportunity for fruitful dialogues.
Each territory has mastered its unique distinctiveness. Individually each has bloomed from the fertile soil and risen to diverse original contemporary artists who masterfully experiment with new subjects, styles, and materials.
Among the artists involved, there are Filipe Branquinho, Charles Bhebe, Matt Kayem, Maina Boniface, Evans Mbugua, Dawit Abebe.
