LAST CHANCE Africa … & the other 54 countries: Focus on Kenya
Kenya is the chosen country for the second exhibition from the series Africa … & the other 54 countries, a concept that aims to celebrate each African country separately for its diversity and singularity through art and culture. Akka Project is the only gallery in the Middle East that focuses on contemporary artists from Africa and its diaspora; “Akka Project sets out to change the image of Africa as one homogenous place by presenting an array of art, culture and entertainment that showcases the diversity of Africa” says founder and MD Lidija Khachatourian.
Kenya’s ethnic diversity has produced a vibrant culture that is perceived in the different artistic expressions of the contemporary art scene. Exploring their identity as Kenyans, this exhibition brings together a group of artists from different backgrounds and different style, theme and expertise.
