ART X Lagos Announces 5th Anniversary Edition

//

ART X Collective has announced the 5th Anniversary Edition of ART X Lagos opening from the 6th of November 2020. The 2020 art fair will deliver the opportunity to encounter stunning artwork by the continent’s talent through a series of immersive physical and virtual events. Physical interactions will be limited this year, for the health and safety of all guests, partners and teams.

The ART X Collective also launched the ART X Review – a mentoring opportunity for young talent, designed to encourage budding artists to keep creating during these uncertain times.

A mix of curated projects will expand the imaginations of the fair’s diverse audiences, while collectors will be able to view a selection of unique artworks in-person by appointment, with a supporting digital presentation giving access to the fair’s wider, global audience.

ART X Talks will deliver a roster of poignant virtual conversations, and ART X Live! will feature an exciting line-up of emerging music and art talent, brought together in a unique virtual experiment. Programming details for these events are yet to be announced.

Launched in 2016, ART X Lagos is West Africa’s premier international art fair, which was designed to showcase the best and most innovative contemporary and modern art from the African continent and its diaspora.

Since its debut, four highly successful editions of the fair have held, and firmly anchored ART X Lagos not only as a cornerstone of the Nigerian art and cultural scene, but as one of the most exciting emerging art fairs on the global calendar.

“This year has tested the very essence of our humanity and has brought upheaval to us all, with unique challenges to artists and entrepreneurs in the culture sector. The 5th Edition of ART X Lagos will be the culmination of creativity, grit, and purpose, in spite of adversity. Our previous editions have shown ourselves, and the world, what is possible within the African imagination, when we come together, united by our passion and enthusiasm for our continent’s creators. Our belief remains, that the future is bright for Africa and its creative talent, and we are thankful to our community for joining us to make this a reality”.
