Past Exhibitions by John Mubiru.
I have only listed some of my most memorable exhibitions. Apart from these I have almost 50 solo and group exhibitions.
1986 NAIROBI, KENYA.
With a group of about 10 Ugandan artists I participated in the "Women's Decade"at exhibition at the New Stanley Hotel in Nairobi. It was a mile stone since I was only 15 at the time and this was the first time my work got any form of major recognition.
"FOR GREATER HORIZONS"
1988 NEW STANLEY HOTEL GALLERY NAIROBI, KENYA.
As my first solo exhibition it was successful beyond my wildest dreams. The press coverage was great and everybody just loved it. It was the pinnacle of my art experience in Nairobi and also helped to launch my art career to greater horizon.
1991 MIDHUDSON ART AND SCIENCE CENTRE POUGHKEEPSIE, NEW YORK.
With long time friend Danpats Mwesigwa they did their first exhibition in the United States at the Mid hudson Art and Science Center in Poughkeepsie. New York. Having arrived to the US two years earlier they were struggling to put their art career back on track. This would prove to be harder than they thought and they would have to struggle for years. Dan joined the US Armed forces. Mubiru went to the Center for Media Arts.
"LAST OF THE WARRIORS"
1992 LAWRANCE GALLERY WARD NY, NEW YORK.

Myth and Mythologies of the African Diaspora began a long relationship with the Hamilton Hill Art Center's Jerry Burrell Gallery. Mubiru did three solo and group exhibitions at center.
