Quick confession.. I am an art lover, I am equally excited by a paintings, sculptures, drawings, performance and video art. As long as it expresses an idea which the artist can successfully convey, then i’m interested.
That being said, the 2017 edition of ArtX Lagos held at the Lekki Civic Centre from the 3rd to the 5th of November, with a varied collection of African artists displaying some of their most vivid pieces. So of course we were on ground to bask in the general aura of the event, hold artsy conversations with artists and curators as well as take pictures of some of our favorite pieces.
I definitely left excited about the growing art space in Africa in general, and Nigeria in particular, and I look forward to seeing what the organizing team do with the event next year.
