Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos

The 4th edition of the Lagos Biennial will take place in the heart of Lagos on the historic grounds of Tafawa Balewa Square, a site named in honor of the first Nigerian Prime Minister Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa. The biennial will move the cursor away from a eurocentric history of ‘universal’ exhibitions and biennials in order to create the premises for discussing political alliances, territory, sovereignty, regionality, notions of belonging, encounter, and allegiance.

 

 Lagos Biennial 2023 will encompass experiments in non-conventional models of exhibition making, moving from the idea of the work as an end in itself to generative models and prototypes that will continue to activate possibilities in the world. By situating Lagos as an international geopolitical nerve point and an international hub for artistic expression, the biennial opens a   speculative space for the fabrication of alternate realities.
