Invisible Borders Is Re-Imaging Nigerian Futures, And You Have To See It!

February 7, 2019

Lugard’s Rest House.

Between 2016 and 2017, 12 Nigerian aritsts under the auspices of the Invisible Borders Trans-African Photography Organisation — set out on 2 road trips to find out what it truly means to be Nigerian.

Their journey, which took them around Nigeria, spanned a total of 81 days; during which they documented and shared their experiences into prose, images and film.

These experiences, which involved an examination of Nigeria’s past, and an inquiry into her present and future, have been very carefully curated into an exhibition titled: “Re-Imagining Futures: A Trans-Nigerian Conversation.”

Here’s all you need to know about it:

First off, the exhibition is being made possible by an Apex Art curatorial grant awarded to Invisible

Border’s administrator and artist, Innocent Ekejiuba and Yinka Elujoba.

The exhibition is multi-form and will include images, prose and film created as a result of these exhaustive trips across the country.

Mark your calendars for February 9, 2019 because that’s when the exhibition will begin. You can find the works at the Old Engine Test House, Railway Corporation Yard, Ebutte-metta, Yaba, from 4:00pm till 7:00pm.

The exhibition will run from then on till March 9, 2019 at the Old Engine Test House, Railway Corporation Yard, Ebutte-metta,Yaba from 10:00am till 6:00pm daily.

On February 12 and 13, there will be two public programs at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Lagos located at 2 Idowu Ajao St, Anthony Village, Lagos. On each day, the programs will begin at 3:00pm.

The programs tagged Re-Imaging Futures: Legacy and Re-Imaging Futures: Future Images, will have contemporary Nigerian photographers and artists discussing the history of photography in Nigeria and imaging as a function of identity in current times.

The first public discourse and panel is tagged “Re-Imaging Futures: Legacy” and panelists are: Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Emeka Okereke, Zaynab Odunsi, Uche James-Iroha and Amaize Ojiekere, all members of the first photography collective in Nigeria, Depth Of Field.

The second public discourse and panel is tagged “Re-Imaging Futures: Future Images” and panelists are: Uche Okpa-Iroha, Adenrele Sonariwo, Prof. Jerry Buhari, Mike Asukwo, Rahima Gambo and Folakunle Oshun.

And the best part, both programs are absolutely FREE. So bring your friend, her sister and your favourite neighbour along to experience this truly remarkable exhibition.
