On 27 FEBRUARY 2019, the Lagos Biennial team and Yinka Shonibare CBE welcomed visitors to a Run-Up Event for the Second Edition of the Lagos Biennial entitled, “HOW TO BUILD A LAGOON WITH JUST A BOTTLE OF WINE.”

Guests had the opportunity to meet the curators, dance to Afrobeat and Lagos soundscapes, and visit a Lagos themed experiential exhibition, which included works by Emeka Ogboh, Logor Olumuyiwa, and Jeremiah Ikongio. The event was hosted at Shonibare Studios at the Sunbury House in London.
