African Identities 
AKKA Project Venezia

On the 59th Venice Art Biennale occasion, AKKA Project is thrilled to announce African Identities. This group exhibition aims to highlight the importance of the Arts and Artists from the African Continent. The exhibition will run from April to November 2022.

The first edition of African Identities will focus on exploring the art scene of East Africa. Counting on so many different ethnic groups and cultures, talents, and styles, AKKA Project aims to present and gather these many artists, including established and young talents, under one roof, giving them an opportunity for fruitful dialogues.

Each territory has mastered its unique distinctiveness. Individually each has bloomed from the fertile soil and risen to diverse original contemporary artists who masterfully experiment with new subjects, styles, and materials.

AKKA Project aspires to create a unique and enriching experience, allowing visitors to discover the artists’ stories and works in Venice during the period of La Biennale 2022. All this is African Identities: a unity cluster of artworks and artists from Africa.
