The 2017 edition of the Biennale de Lubumbashi, Rencontres Picha will take place from 7 October - 12 November at various venues over the city of Lubumbashi.
This year’s theme, Éblouissements, questions the creative ways that we find to face visible and invisible forces, the symbolic, the imaginary, the mental, or characters and things that govern our world.
The fifth edition of Biennale de Lubumbashi offers a vast array of works, photographs, videos, interactive pieces, performances, installations, films, sculptures, paintings and innovative projects coming from artist-researcher collaborations. These artworks, with their heterogeneous styles, reflect the reality of current artistic creation in DRC, in dialogue with productions by artists invited from different geopolitical horizons.
