The Institute of Heritage Conservation and Restoration (IHCR)/Makerere Art Gallery will host a segment of the “The Seven Hills ”.
“The second edition of the Kampala Art Biennale, titled “Seven Hills” and conceived by Elise Atangana, will be held from September 3rd to October 2nd, with a preview on September 2nd, 2016. The Kampala Art Biennale, KAB16, is organized and produced by the Kampala Arts Trust, a private initiative. We are happy to be offering Ugandan audiences exhibitions, screenings, talks, performances, meetings with the invited artists and enhanced educational programme for young people.”

Seven Hills is an organic project that focuses on concepts of Mobility Studies which includes the movement of people, objects, services or digital/virtual travel and how it affects us in our day lives. The researches explore “mobilities futures”, the links between physical and virtual mobilities (movement, representation, practice), and consider their relation with contemporary art practice:
