Founded in 2002, Afriart Gallery has since become a leading Contemporary art gallery in Africa with a presence in two locations in Kampala. The gallery focuses on original forms of expression and dialogue with the public. Afriart Gallery was founded by Daudi Karungi, a trained artist who understands the difficulties young artists on the African continent face. The team is committed to creating a fair playing field for artists continuously implementing projects that foster mentorship, visibility and information archiving such as workshops, exhibitions, internships and residencies. Afriart artists have been to major platforms like museums, biennales, important exhibitions and the gallery participates in major art fairs such as 1:54 art fair NY/London, Cape Town Art Fair, Joburg Art, ArtX Lagos, AKAA Paris and ARCO Lisbon.
