ART X LAGOS returns for Version 3.0

Posted on

ART X Lagos, the dynamic visual art and live music show which has redefined the Art space in Lagos will return on Saturday 3rd November for its third installment. This year the show will seek to explore Africa’s rich musical history with a celebration of our heroes’ past – the icons, legends and sounds that have shaped the continent’s contemporary musical landscape.

The third edition of the dynamic one-night only show which intersects music, visual art and live
performance sponsored by Absolut and Budweiser, will act as a hybrid for the fastest-rising alternative musicians and exciting young artists of the Lagos underground creative scene.

The 2018 ART X Live! Show, curated by Lanre Masha, with Odunsi The Engine as Creative
Director zeroes in on three distinctive eras of the continent’s musical legacy – the 80s, 90s and
early 2000s. The show will feature Nigerian musicians BOJ and Teni the Entertainer as well as
Ghanaian musician Amaarae, who will deliver performances rooted in an exploration of a
particular decade.

Each artist will perform a live set, accompanied by visual artists Chukwuka Nwobi, Tomisin
Akins and Fadekemi Ogunsanya to capture a sense of nostalgia, and a reunion of emotions that
traverse the past and present sounds of Africa’s music.

ART X Live! Is part of ART X Lagos, the  international art fair founded by Tokini Peterside.

ART X Live! will hold on Saturday, 3rd November, 2018 at the Civic Centre in Victoria Island. The show
is invite only, but to win tickets follow #ARTXLive on social media.
