KAB20 is a story of transmission from one generation of artists to the next. Unlike the common format of major biennales which historically show and promote the best of their time, as a platform where professionals and the market can come and choose the next big artist, KAB is choosing a format that vehicles our continent’s original values of sharing and transferring knowledge. Thus, KAB20 will take on a master/apprentice format to allow for the transmission of artistic skill from contemporary art masters to the future generation of artists. For KAB20, Njami has invited 8 internationally renown artists to open their studios in Kampala to young Ugandan, African and international artists. The Master artists will open their studios for a 20 days period in Kampala, Uganda, according to their own practices in order to cover all the different aspects of contemporary art today (sculpture, performance, installation, video, painting, photography, etc).
