Are you a lover of arts? Do you like meeting other art lovers like you? Then, you have to be at Nnenna Okore’s art exhibition.
Nnenna Okore is a talented and internationally acclaimed sculptor and installation artist. She returns to Nigeria to hold her first major art exhibition beginning June 20th, 4pm, at the Goethe Institut in Lagos. After a successful series of exhibitions at galleries in the US and the UK, the Assistant Professor of Art at North Park University, Chicago will bring her vibrant and constructive approach to sculptural and installation art to a keen Nigerian art audience. The exhibition will be opened by her mentor at the University of Nsukka and famed art sculptor in his own right El Anatsui.
Nnenna often uses materials found in urban environments. Her artworks reflect the way natural and man-made materials evolve, decay and transform. She has received several awards and residencies worldwide, and has been exhibited in several prestigious galleries and museums.
The German Cultural center, the Goethe Institut are her hosts for this show presented by Kachifo Limited, publishers of Farafina Books.
The exhibition runs at the Goethe Institut from June 20th until July 10th.
