Artist and curator Jude Anogwih offers an insight into the contemporary art scene in Lagos, introducing a series of projects and artists currently working in one of the most exciting and dynamic cities in Africa. Anogwih works as a curator at CCA Lagos, a contemporary art centre in Nigeria. He is also a founding member and coordinator of Video Art Network, Lagos.
The talk is followed by a panel discussion on the opportunities and challenges of working across different continents and contexts. Chaired by Alessio Antoniolli (Director of Gasworks and Triangle Network), the panel includes Jude Anogwih, Kerryn Greenberg (Assistant Curator Tate Modern) and Albert Potrony (London-based artist who has recently completed a residency at CCA Lagos).
Jude Anogwih is participating in a curatorial residency exchange initiated by Tate Modern in collaboration with Gasworks and supported by the World Collections Programme. This exchange forms part of the Level 2 exhibitions programme at Tate Modern and will result in a collaborative exhibition curated by Jude Anogwih and Kerryn Greenberg at CCA Lagos and Tate Modern later this year.
