Henry Tayali Visual Art Centre

Place: Zambia

Focus: Photography, Workshops, Seminars, Archives, Exhibitions, Education

The Henry Tayali Art Gallery was named as a tribute to late artist Henry Tayali, who died in Germany in 1987. Henry Tayali was born in Serenje, Zambia in 1943. Tayali’s talent was evident so early that he had his first exhibition at the age of 15, in Bulawayo , Zimbabwe where he lived at the time. He had already developed a social and political conscience which came to inspire all his work. His work reflected African nationalism, and deep concern for Africa’s urban masses uncomfortably uprooted from their traditions.
