ART X Lagos is happening from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th November 2017, and will present the works of over 60 artists from 15 countries across Africa and the Diaspora.

This year, there are four distinct interactive projects curated by A Whitespace Creative Agency (AWCA), designed to engage its vast audience.

The Colouring Bus will feature a piece created by Olalekan Jeyifous, fabricated onto an iconic danfo bus which you are welcome to leave your mark on. Other projects include ART X Portraits, and a Live Art Studio with several emerging artists, as well as our ‘In Conversation With’ series which enables university art students to engage with established Nigerian artists Victor Ehikhamenor and Uche Okpa-Iroha.

Meanwhile, ART X Lagos is introducing a new series, In Conversation With. This is a new series focused on engaging university art students in an intimate conversation with motivational, established Nigerian artists.
