Art Exhibitions

We have two astonishing exhibitions at Ake Arts and Book Festival this year. Although both exhibitors are Nigerians, they are out-of-towners.


 Ayobola Kekere Ekun's
work often examines subjects connected to gender,identity and the human condition. Her current series "Cultural Dysmorphia" which will be exhibited at Ake Festival examines the construct of culture in the Nigerian society. She will also complete an intricate artwork before our eyes.

 

 


Fatima Abubakar
has dazzled the world with Bits of Borno - a series of photographs which capture the transformation and breath-taking beauty of a landscape ravaged by violence and intolerance. Through Fatima's bold and awe-inspiring lens, we become active observers as the brave people of Borno State get their groove back.
