In Selections Guided Tour

Lagos Biennial has just closed the doors of its latest edition that encompassed exhibitions, performances, publishing projects, and public programmes. According to the biennial’s founding director Folakunle Oshun, “The three curators come from diverse backgrounds with a wealth of international experience across the fields of contemporary art, architecture, and design.” And that artistic richness was reflected across the biennial.

The curatorial team for the biennial consisting of: Antawan Byrd, Tosin Oshinowo, and Oyindamola Fakeye have made a selection of 38 Artists from a total of 350 applications and the selected artists have responded critically to the theme of the Biennial ‘’How to Build a Lagoon with Just a Bottle of Wine’’ through their proposals.

This edition of Lagos Biennial opened up conversations and invited reflection on environments across group and solo exhibitions, installations, and public programmes. Here’s a tour across Lagos Biennial through photos.

The biennial took place from 23rd of October until the 26th of November.
