Lagos state is set to host the Indigo Arya living and working art exhibition showcasing visual artists living and working in West Africa’s economic capital.
According to the organisers, the exhibition will be a bridge connecting corporate Lagos with creative Lagos, and igniting powerful one-on-one encounters between the art and the audience.
The exhibition will be a two-day event with a private view on Saturday, March 12, 2016, and a ticketed event open to the public on Sunday, March 13, 2016.
The show will reach out to two influential socio-economic groups defining the direction of the economic scene in Lagos: business leaders; dynamic, young up-and-coming professionals and creatives.
Indigo Arya partnered with Heritage Place, the first environmentally-certified commercial building in the city, to organise the event.
The organisers say its iconic design, prestigious address and bar-raising specification set a new standard for Nigeria’s architectural landscape, with the entire top floor (1805sqm) converted into fantastic exhibition and performance area.
The event will showcase Nigerian Photographers, illustrators, installation artists, painters and videographers and 18 artistes.
The artistes are Andrew Esiebo, August Udoh, Tom Sateer, Obi Somto, Tolani Alli, Emmanuel Ogabi, Aham Ibeleme, Moses Oghagbon, Dennis Osadebe, Damilola Opedun, Dipo Doherty, Tuni Barlow, Elizabeth Ofili, Collyde Prime, Osa7, Femi Arongundade, Ada Umeofia and Addie Mak.
Mydrim gallery, located at 74B Norman Williams street, Ikoyi, will also be curating a section of the exhibition with works from their collection of younger artists.
There will be inspirational speakers talking about the future of the creative arts in Nigeria, such Segun Adejumo, president of the Guild of Professional Fine Artists of Nigeria (GFA).
There will also be artist corners where the artists will discuss their works and their journeys to date.
An exclusive viewing of a video interview with Yemisi Shyllon, owner of Nigeria’s largest private art collection, will also hold on both days of the exhibition.
