WAN ACEL invites you to de-classify art through the work of a diverse group of thirty intergenerational artists, both individual and collective. WAN ACEL Artists are examining their contexts of art production—thus, interrogating prevailing narratives that serve to construct and maintain hierarchies of art creation. The title, WAN ACEL|TULIBAMU | TURIBAMWE are representative of the borderless origins of the exhibiting artists, spoken in wider Africa Through explorations of collective memory, WAN ACEL reveals and offers an intimate, multi-sensory kaleidoscope of materiality and artisanship. We invite you to ask; “how are you? instead of “who are you!?, why are you here!?”

About the Library Of Weaving (LOW)

LOW is a body of work by a coalition of 25 leading artisan weavers , consisting of patterns of weaving and shapes found in mats and basketry. The exhibition will exist as an encyclopedic catalogue of texture, colour, and form found both within Uganda, and beyond its borders.
