"EAST AFRICA'S MODERN ART MOVEMENT"
1999-12-01 until 2000-08-31
The Art Room
San Francisco, CA,
USA United States of America
While traditional art forms such as masks and sculpture have been collected
for centuries, since the 1930s world-class works of fine art have developed
among members of East Africas Ugandan School. Collected throughout Europe
for decades, this exhibit marks the arrival of East African modern painting
in the Bay Area. Distinct stylistic originality and significant technical
innovation combine to yield works of striking depth and power, exploring
diverse origins and revealing new directions taken by leading members of this
fine art movement.
Newly opened, THE ART ROOM establishes a center for East African fine
painting in the Bay Area. Important original works by leading Ugandan artists
James Kitamirike and David Kibuuka, among others, are exhibited.
(December 1, 1999, through August 31, 2000.) Call for viewing hours.
