The Lagos Biennial opens to the general public on the 14th of October 2017. Themed “Living on the Edge”, the Inaugural Edition of the Lagos Biennial explores Crisis in both historical and contemporary contexts.
Among the lists of artists showcasing their works will be:
Sam Hopkins and David Lale
Ranjeeta Kumari Yara Mekawei
Obuh Christopher Nelson
The exhibitions are framed around the concept of superimpositions, and examine parallel histories and counter narratives with the character of the city of Lagos as catalyst.
The main Biennial exhibition will take place at the Running Shed of the Railway compound in Yaba, Lagos. Legacy 1995, a historical and environmental interest group in Nigeria are the main partners for the Lagos Biennial 2017 and will be granting access to monumental and historic architecture in the city of Lagos.
