Samsung and Rele Gallery collaborate on innovative art exhibition and competition

The exhibition themed, ‘Interactions: Crossing Lines’ is led by the powerful visual artist duo of Soji Adesina and Uthman Wahaab.

 

Tech company Samsung and contemporary art destination, Rele Gallery have announced a first-of-its-kind collaboration featuring an art competition and an art exhibition, a meeting of the worlds of technology and art.

The exhibition themed, ‘’ is led by the powerful visual artist duo of Soji Adesina and Uthman Wahaab. The body of work, to be presented, seeks to deconstruct the concept of how drawings interact with the gallery space. The drawings will be rendered to exceed the boundaries of drawing surfaces, (paper & canvass) travelling onto the walls of the gallery and into digital spaces – Samsung tablet devices.

This innovative exhibition will mark a milestone for the tech and art industry in Nigeria, as this would be the very first time that interactions between both spaces would happen on such a large scale. This synergy already exists in other parts of the world with museums from New York to Venice engaging art work with tech devices. Now, Nigeria is catching up to the trend, thanks to Samsung and Rele Gallery. Samsung, with its devices and Rele Gallery, in the art it showcases, are both committed to creative disruptions, initiatives and projects that engage people, change the way we see, think – and this collaboration is one of such.

Running alongside the exhibition will be an art competition where participants are required to submit an art work (drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, video art and mixed media work) that fits into the aforementioned theme, as illustrated by the work of artist duo Soji Adesina and Uthman Wahaab.

Reputable art industry leaders will judge the competition based on the following criteria:

The exhibition opens to the public, at the gallery, which is situated at 5 Military Street, Onikan Lagos from September 1 to September 13, 2015. During this period competition entries can be viewed on Samsung devices at the gallery.

The competition ends on the September 9th 2015.

  • Terms and Conditions Apply

There will be a closing ceremony for the exhibition on September 13 2015 on which day top 3 winners of the competition, selected based on both social media and judges’ votes, will receive prizes.
