KLA ART 014 – Kampala’s biennial contemporary art festival is calling visual artist to apply for THE BODA BODA PROJECT.
From 4 -31 October 2014 , the festival will showcase contemporary artists from Uganda and Uganda’s neighbouring countries to the public. This year’s theme is Unmapped; who are the unheard voices of our cities? How can we represent and celebrate the unseen urban-dweller?
THE BODA BODA PROJECT, one of the three parts of the festival, 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.
