Art in Tanzania (Exhibition) (2000 : Dar es Salaam). Art in Tanzania 2000: the annual art event: Dar es Salaam / presented by Yves Goscinny, director. Dar es Salaam: East African Movies, 2000. 114pp. illus. (color). N5090.D37A78 2000 AFA. OCLC 84686187.

This is the third annual national art exhibition in Tanzania, which is very much a home-grown low-budge initiative. Thirty artists are featured in the 2000 outing. Several are Tingatinga painters and Makonde sculptors. Others are less readily classified. Most are self-taught artists, which points to Tanzania’s lack of an art school (apart from the sculpture school in Bagamoyo).
