Eclectica Contemporary | ART X Lagos 2021
Eclectica Contemporary is excited to take part in ART x Lagos 2021 Online. This year’s presentation is a celebration of pan-African expression, showcasing artists from South Africa, Congo, Nigeria, Sudan and Egypt. Our selection of artist all echo the vibrancy and energy of Lagos through expressive colors, textures and design, while contributing to the larger discussion of African identity in modern times. Loyiso Mkize samples from comic book aesthetics in order to deconstruct African narratives and indigenous knowledge, while Asanda Kupa’s distorted figures reflects the streets of the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Painter Hussein Salim draws from nostalgia to connect to his homeland in Sudan and Ley Mboramwe’s vigorous burst of lines and colours on canvas mirrors his memories and experiences of the Congo, all contributing to the psychological geography of the continent. The exhibition is also available to view on Artsy from 3 - 21 November.
