Through a series of talks, walkabouts, lectures, seminars and other programs aligned to the exhibition, the project aims to sensitize and mobilize South African, African audiences and the media, in the appreciation of contemporary African visual arts. Art is seen as a means to promote inter Africa /Diaspora cultural exchange in a direct and meaningful way.

Supported by the department of Arts and Culture’s international department, !Kauru provides a platform for African contemporary artists and cultural practioners to engage around a showcase of contemporary art from the continent that will travel 5 regions of the African continent. The strategy aims to incorporate all the regions of Africa over the lifespan of the project, which began in 2012 with artists from the SADC region and East Africa. The exhibition will promote mid-career to established artists and will showcase the maturity and exceptional wealth of talent to be found within the region.

The exhibition opens at UNISA Art Gallery on 22 May 2014.
