The first edition of the Lagos Biennial of contemporary art will be held from the 14th October to 22nd November 2017 in six different venues across Nigeria’s metropolis.

The theme of the biennial “Living on the Edge”, seeks to interrogate the experiences of contemporary artists in and around crisis situations. The theme also hopes to explore contemporary realities of the thematic interpretations opened up by the works to be exhibited, pushing the idea of “the edge” to its broadest geographical and psychological limits.

The Lagos Biennial will be curated by an international team consisting of Amira Paree, a Paris-based Egyptian/Dutch artist, Perpetuum Mobilε, a curatorial platform co-directed by Ivor Stodolsky and Marita Muukkonenwhich brings together art, engaged practice and enquiry, and Folakunle Oshunas Artistic Director.
