Aiyesan, Ekpenisi, Ernest, others in Shared memories, New visions
NK Art is set to show Shared Memories, New Visions, an exhibition that promotes indigenous African artists by sharing their memories and visions through Art.
Eleven Nigerian contemporary artists are exhibiting. They are, Segun Aiyesan, Steve Ekpenisi, Nkwocha Ernest, Alex Peter Idoko, Jekein Lato-Unah, Chukz Okonkwo, Kelani Fatai, Stephanie Unaeze, Yaknoabasi Ene, Unyime Edet and Segun Okewumi.
According to a statement by the organisers, “the powers of visions and memories are unequalled and indescribable. They open doors to the coming and pave the ways towards the future.”
The statement said these artists are expected to share and communicate their memories giving insight into what their visions may look like, as visions can be seen as memories that have not yet happened
The exhibition holds at Omenka Gallery, Ikoyi, Lagos, from August 27 to September 10, 2022.
NK Art gives awareness to artists and their national and universal cultural heritage, locally and globally, and the necessity of the arts as a vitally important element for the economic and intellectual development of both the individual and society.
