Art Clip Africa is pleased to invite you to an exhibition showcasing an artistic response to the call of the city of Lagos.
Nigerian photographer, Oluwamuyiwa Logo, and South African abstract artist, Richard Ketley, explore the aesthetic beneath the chaos of the city of Lagos in a joint exhibition entitled Call/Response.
Africa’s busy and vibrant cities offer both inspiration and challenges for visual artists, who seek to uncover and express the essence of these ever-changing environments. Call/Response delves into the deep reality of one of the continent’s most populous cities, Lagos (Nigeria).
The exhibition, which will be mounted in both Lagos and Johannesburg, is an expression of the artists’ fascination with the chaos of Lagos and of their journey towards finding an aesthetic within this chaos.
Logo (Logor), works predominantly in black-and-white photography. He has both a conceptual and a documentary approach, and seeks to use the camera to capture people, things and stories from perspectives that are often overlooked, ignored or taken for granted.
Ketley, on the other hand, is interested in the formal elements of painting and draws inspiration from the many countries he visits.
Art Clip Africa exhibition in Lagos opens on June 18th 2016, while the exhibition in Johennesburg opens at The Gavin Project gallery in August.
Private Opening: Saturday, 18 June, 2016
Time: 5.00 pm
Venue: Art Clip Africa, 1a Ozumba Mbadiwe road, Victoria Island, Lagos.
