The 2017 edition of ART X Lagos will deliver a broader, dynamic program of exhibitions, talks and interactive projects.
Launched in 2016, ART X Lagos is West Africa’s first international art fair, which was designed to showcase the best and most innovative contemporary art from the African continent and diaspora, and to widen Nigeria’s connection to the art scene across Africa and internationally.
Through its contribution to the increased visibility of African artists, ART X Lagos aims to reinforce the visual arts as an important component of the creative industry in Nigeria and Africa, and to position Lagos as an emergent cultural capital on the continent.
The debut edition of ART X Lagos welcomes 5,000 visitors to The Civic Center, to see the works of over 65 artists drawn from 10 countries around Africa. The fair features specially curated projects, as well as a series of interactive audience engagement projects, and a vibrant live performance platform for artists and musicians.
