Just about one of the biggest arts exhibitions in Nigeria is set to hold in Lagos starting this weekend.
The Temple Management Company’s Art Division is set to school Nigerians on how to value art with a two-week exhibition themed ‘It’s Not Furniture’.
The event, which will be held at the Omenka Gallery, Lagos between May 27th and June 9th 2017, will see a gathering of Art enthusiasts, collectors and works from six contemporary artists ranging from Mixed media to Charcoal drawings.
The concept of the exhibition declares that art is not furniture but a representation of the life, belief and culture of young contemporary individuals.
Working with established artists, such as; Marcellina Akpojotor, Logo Oluwamuyiwa, Ken Nwadiogbu, Fola David, John Madu and Jeiken Lato-Unah, the inaugural exhibition hopes to cement their global presence and to create a name for them in the local scene.
Temple Art Manager, Winifred Okpapi, said: “Temple Arts aims to create artistic experiences that catalyse cultural exchanges, connect communities, and engage the public’s imagination.
“Our annual exhibition serves as a platform to encourage emerging contemporary artists’ adventurous experimentation and creativity.”
These artists will be showing their works through the uniqueness of various artistic expressions, with the background of Nigeria in modern times.
