Lagos Biennial 2021>2023

Tafawa    Balewa   Square,    Lagos

The 4th edition of the Lagos Biennial will take in the heart of Lagos on the historic grounds of Tafawa Balewa Square, a site named in honor of the first Nigerian Prime Minister. The biennial will reappropriate representation within a eurocentric history of so-called universal exhibitions and biennials, creating a premise for discussing political alliances, allegiances, territory, sovereignty, regionality, and the very notion of belonging. Lagos Biennial 2023 will encompass speculations and propositions in non-conventional formalizing models of biennial 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 a global geopolitical nerve point and an international hub for artistic expression, the biennial opens   a   speculative          space           for           fabrication    of              alternate               realities.
