The Ivuka Arts group in Kigali is one of a handful of nascent and groundbreaking collective studios in Rwanda, which are exploring the creative potential of contemporary art and providing networks and educational and supportive opportunities to their surrounding communities. The six professional artists and nine young artists showing in the exhibition have been working creatively for many years and represent the best of young talent that Rwanda has to offer.Working from a position of being self- taught, the artists have developed their own expressive language both collectively and individually, and explore both figurative and abstract expressionist ideas, separately and in combination. The artists work in acrylics with a striking sense of colour and movement, translating their environment and their contemporary sense of place in modern Africa.
