The exhibition is promoting cultural exchange between Uganda and UK, it will feature new works by artists from both locations with a focus on sculpture. The project originates from an artist residency and research by Kate Parsons around the cultural identity and heritage of the Bakonjo people in Uganda. The show encourages a political and cultural look at how art can communicate these concepts to a wider audience reflecting current thought, universal ideas of humanity and solidarity. It is hoped that the show will provide a platform for thought and action through discussion and visual stimulation representing universal themes of life, death and reproduction.
