Doual’art is a contemporary art center based in Douala since 1991. As a research laboratory on the relationship between art and the city, it wants to push the boundaries of contemporary art. Its ambitions is to give a soul to a changing southern city, to reveal its emerging identities, to give a forum for public speech on specific issues as well as change the gaze on the aesthetics of its environment and, by the end, create an audience carefulness of contemporary art. To do this, doual’art exhibits and invites cameroonian and international artists, both in “Espace doual’art”, the white cube gallery space and outside in the public areas, where these creative people (visual artists, designers, architects,…) are invited to dialogue with urban practices. Since 2007, doual’art organizes the Trienal SUD-Salon Urbain de Douala, a public art festival whose purpose is to go and meet the inhabitants and enrich the city’s contemporary heritage.

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.
