On Sunday, RELE gallery opened its fourth exhibition of contemporary art, titled ‘STRIP’, sponsored by foremost champagne house, Laurent-Perrier.

The exhibition, curated by art and culture writer, Ayodeji Rotinwa & broadcaster and culture savant, Wana Udobang was a themed collection of nude art by a prominent and vibrant group of artists namely Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Reze Bonna, Ayoola Gbolahan, Ibe Ananaba, Isaac Emopkae, Logor and Toyosi Kekere-Ekun; in various artistic medium such as painting and photography.

STRIP is an investigation of the human anatomy; an attempt to provoke keen engagement; to deconstruct myths and truths of power, shame, freedom, beauty (and more)- the different shades of attendant feelings that accompany an encounter with a naked body.
