Another Country: Kenya Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale
May 12 – November 26, 2017
Palladio School - Giudecca 373, Venice

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and the Arts of the Republic of Kenya proudly announces its participation at the 57th Venice Biennale with the exhibition Another Country comprising of works by five contemporary artists. The Kenya Pavilion partners with Zuecca Projects in merging cultural boundaries through exchange and educational practice.

Another Country is a title taken from James Baldwin's 1961 novel narrating a crucial year in the lives of its 8 major characters. The story is an intensely long and passionate narrative - born out of intensity and compassion – urging attention, bringing to the fore timeless questions that demand explanations from a society that seems to insist that there is no hope. In this other country, social barriers within a raptured society are slashed away; the complexities of love and antipathy are mercilessly explored. The power of antagonisms is communicated with terrifying force, and what remains are the truths and the realities of human experience stretched to its limits.
