Really really really enjoyed ArtX Lagos 2017. I was amazed by the sheer talent and innovation we have here in Nigeria. Tons of people showed up which this is great news for the local art scene because they are finally getting the recognition and appreciation they deserve. However, it was also very crowded, and navigating in and out of spaces was a bit tricky. Parking was also a nightmare (glad I took an Uber). Hopefully they can secure a bigger space next year. But overall, 5 stars. I will definitely attend again.
Art X Lagos is an art fair and it launched in 2016. Loved the concept but I just didn't get why there was a private viewing for one of the artists and why they had a VIP section at an art fair???Art works from different artists were exhibited and there was a class with old artists most creatives look up to like Baba Bruce Onabrakpeya and a few others. Loved the wall that had abstract stuff people could paint using markers, loved the music& art fusion. There were stalls for food like the café neo stall, Hans & rene... Lovely atmosphere, great concept, small but okay location (they need a bigger one this year). On that note, I can't wait for the next one (3rd - 5th Nov, 2017).
