About the Njabala Foundation
Njabala is a multi-faceted campaign sourcing inspiration from a popular Ugandan myth of Njabala to facilitate conversations on womanhood. The Foundation’s responsibility is to curate periodic exhibitions, as well as organize a public program of activities aimed at creating safe spaces for female artists to thrive. To increase the visibility of the work of women artists, Njabala Foundation in various ways campaigns against gender inequality in the art world by organizing art exhibitions and events exclusively dedicated to highlighting the work of women artists.

The Curatorial Intensive is made possible by the Marian Goodman Gallery Initiative in honor of the late Okwui Enwezor, Teiger Foundation, and generous support from Mercedes Vilardell and ICI’s Leadership Council.
