ALL THE LIGHT WE CAN SEE

October 12, 2017

 

AN EXHIBITION OF ARTWORKS IN WHICH PUBLIC MONUMENTS IN KAMPALA HAVE BEEN RENDERED ACCESSIBLE FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITY.

27 OCTOBER – 15 NOVEMBER 2017,

Opening at 5pm.

 

Makerere Institute of Heritage Research and Conservation is presenting the All the Light We Can See Exhibition curated by Angelo Kakande. The show presents works done under the project entitled Kampala’s Public Monuments/Allegories of Exclusion: Perspectives of Governance, Human Rights and Development. Funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, this project unfolded a research agenda through which selected national monuments were rendered accessible to the persons with disabilities (PWDs). Being part of this research project, Simon Banga (a graduate student from CEDAT), Lodovic Frank Ssentamu and Ernest Mukwaya (undergraduate students of architecture from CEDAT) produced work on devising ways of rendering Uganda’s public art accessible to PWDs. The exhibition showcases interventions through which art, art history, disability studies, culture, policy and the law interact to widen the audience of Uganda’s contemporary art.
