A Swing in the Other Direction

The Creative Tribe’s monthly Popup Gallery set to feature the works of Doddridge Busingye

After bringing you Uganda’s first Generative Art exhibition last month, The Creative Tribe is taking a swing in the other direction with a contemporary- traditional art exhibition. The once-a-month pop-up gallery which is now in its 9th edition will feature larger than life art pieces as well as an Installation by Doddridge Busingye. The collection titled “Trip to Mind” will be exhibited for the first time in public.

Doddrige’s work dares to share his opinion on socio-political and gender ironies of his contemporary art with the world. The paintings and installations pose questions intended to engage the viewer in conversations about the familiar scenes depicted in the compositions. His paintings comprise of figurative compositions of portraits presented with familiar metaphors. While his installations tend to be of objects that are formally people’s possessions, arranged and presented as a statement on socio-political issues.

 

Through this exhibition, The Creative Tribe hopes to engage the general public as well creatives in the visual arts community to tackle societal issues and engage in conversation around relevant topics —after all, in the words of Alice Walker

The artist.. is the voice of the people.

The Popup Gallery is presented by The Creative Tribe in partnership with The Innovation Village (TIV) at their Jinja home located at Plot 5 Main St., Jinja. The Exhibition will open on 1st October at 4:00 pm and run through to 3rd October. Entrance is free to all Creative Tribe & TIV members, visuals artists, and students. Anyone not in the aforementioned categories will pay 5,000/= only for entrance.
