The Event

The fourth Annual Visual Art Museum Programme exhibition will open on Tuesday, 12 May 2015  at 18h30 in the Lower Gallery of the National Art Gallery of Namibia (NAGN).

This year the AVAMP 2015, which is a joint collaboration between the NAGN and the Art Association Heritage Trust (AAHT), will have a photography theme title: Re-presenting Photography in Namibia.

The exhibition seeks to give a concise overview of the development of photography in Namibia, and more so regarding the changing view of the lens in the past years. The AVAMP 2015 exhibition aspires to show a selection of historical, documentary and fine art photography, featuring photos from the colonial era through to the dawn of Namibia’s Independence, as well as contemporary works of today. 

A catalogue with full colour images will also be for sale on the night of the opening.
