Art X Lagos hit the Civic Centre, Lagos Nigeria with its second edition on Friday the 3rd of November beginning with its VIP presentation. The invitation only event was opened by the special guest of the evening, His Highness, Muhammadu Sanusi II (CON), Emir of Kano alongside The Honourable Minister of Information & Culture, Lai Mohammed and an array of Nigerian dignitaries.
For what began as a project proposal for its founder, Tokini Peterside during her MBA program, Art X, Lagos, in a short space of time has managed to garner enough appeal, both locally and internationally, to make it the premier international art fair in West Africa. Its first edition in 2016 attracted over five thousand people in attendance and the 2017 edition promises much more.
ART X Lagos 2017 promises a weekend of fascinating content, set to a wide and diverse audience. Features include the exhibitors, specially curated installations, a programme of talks, the ART X Prize, and tonight’s audience favorite – ART X Live!
