The exhibition Indulgence, curated by Violet Nantume and Nyambura M. Waruingi, is the third iteration in a series of conversations that had begun in 2015 and led to the exhibition Eroticism and Intimacy: Face, Places, and Paths at Under Ground Contemporary Art Space in Kampala in 2016. Now, Idulgence takes the artists and curators from Kenya and Uganda out of their comfort zones, building on our interpretations of genders, sexualities, and pleasures in their particular artistic expressions. It seeks to illuminate the relationship between art and its ability to interrogate, using local knowledges, and reflecting on issues affecting Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity (SOGI). Regionally and artistically diverse, the participating artists have been investigating genders, sexualities, and pleasures in their own locality drawing from their experiences to inform their artistic practice.
The exhibition will be broadened by several events: the exhibition opening on 5th April 2018, several walkabouts with the curator and an artist’s talk in conversation with Awuor Onyango on 19th April 2018. The exhibition will travel to Johannesburg, South Africa later this year, supported by !Kauru Contemporary Art From Africa.
