These artists produced new series that form a spatial and conceptual mapping of the city. They question how we interact and move within the urban environment and how cultural identity is framed through complex social and political forces. Working across painting, drawing, sculpture, performance and installation, they raise diverse issues ranging from economic inequality and government corruption to gender issues and methods of consumption. 
 


The Arthouse Foundation is a non-profit organisation that aims to encourage the creative development of contemporary art in Nigeria. Through a residency-based programme, the Arthouse Foundation provides a platform for artists to expand their practice and experiment with new art forms and ideas.
