TP-Collective presents the second edition of its annual art fair, ART X Lagos.
From Friday 3rd November to Sunday 5th November 2017, The Civic Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria, will host some of Africa’s most sought-after and emerging artists, from countries as diverse as South Africa, Ghana, Ivory Coast and many more.
The maiden edition of ART X Lagos last year saw 65 artists from 10 countries in Africa present works of art across various mediums including painting, sculpture, illustration and photography. Over the course of three days, more than 5,000 guests including art lovers, art enthusiasts, private collectors and international observers came through the Civic Centre to see art from around the African continent. A Special performance show tagged ART X Live! was a live installation that combined music with visual art, while the art fair also featured a talks program with over 30 local and international speakers.
In just 4 months, ART X Lagos will return to entertain a vast and varied local and international audience as it seeks to reinforce Lagos’ position as an emergent cultural capital on the African continent. The 2017 art fair is made possible by the support of its sponsors, which thus far includes Access Bank (Gold Sponsor); Absolut (Silver Sponsor); Stanbic IBTC Pensions, Seven Up and Anap Jets (Bronze Sponsors). ART X Lagos was founded by Tokini Peterside, while its executive team is also supported by an Advisory Board comprised of Labi Ogunbiyi, Dudun Peterside, Evelyn Oputu, Fatima Wali-Abdurrahman, Femi Lijadu, Jess Castellote, Junaid Dikko, N’Goné Fall and Reni Folawiyo.
