The Zambians are Coming
Thursday,18 November 2021 – Saturday, 18 December 2021
The Zambians Are Coming is an initiative that was developed by Zambian artists, Mulenga Mulenga, Aubrey Chali, Danny Chilyapa Lwando, Sydney Siansangu Zenzele Chulu, Paul Banda, Mwamba Chikwemba, Mulenga Chafilwa Lombe Nsama, and Owen Shikabeta to foster linkages and networking in the fields of visual arts through an art exhibition that was inspired by the historical background Zambia played in political circles in the fight for liberation in Southern Africa.
As independent southern African people, we have seen a lot of economic and political treaties signed. As strides are being made to make business’s and political prosperity, it is against this background that arts and culture need to rise to the occasion and ride on the solid economic and stable political foundations.
The Zambians Are Coming group exhibition, showcases artworks that represent the culture of an era that brings in narratives about reality and history, tradition and contemporary practices including art and politics. The artists presented their understanding and interpretation of the issues around them from an artistic perspective. With this spectacular exhibition, the artists are advocating for cultural policy inclusion at the SADC level and also advocating for environmental sustainability in the subregions.
The exhibition is open for public viewing in the NAGN Main Gallery
from Friday, 19 November 2021- Saturday, 18 December 2021.
