Laurent-Perrier Champagne and Araba’s Homemade recently sponsored the “Woven Beauty Exhibition” – a realization of the wealth of the Nigerian culture and art.

The opening night was an exciting VIP evening at the Red Door Gallery as the artist, designer and photographer – Tunde Owolabi collaborated with Laurent Perrier Champagne and Arabas Homemade to treat ‘Lagosians’ to a combination of fine art, photography, sound/video art installations, fashion and live performances.

Aso-Oke “The Woven Beauty” exhibition is a culmination of two years of creative research and work by Tunde Owolabi to deepen the understanding of a textile making tradition with centuries of history behind it. The exhibition has been recognized as a “contemporary history lesson” in the art and skill behind the Aso-Oke design process.

Laurent-Perrier Champagne and Araba’s homemade were great hosts as guests from the art, business, fashion & diplomatic communities enjoyed fine champagne and food while admiring the beautiful art & photography on display.

    hI guys, the photo with ‘Tunde & Shade Thomas-Fahm’ The man beside them is Kolade Oshinowo. He is one of the greatest and most popular artist in Nigeria. Well known internationally. There is no Nigerian art history without mentioning his name.

    Did y’all just run through Nigeria’s finest abstract artist, Uchay Joel Chima, without so much as an acknowledgement?….(Pix above Araba Morakinyo, Moshood Owolabi & Mrs Abudu. Man in Face Cap)

    This is probably the best article i have read on bella naija so far. It goes to show that i am not the only one in Nigeria thinking about how to keep our culture from disappearing.This beautiful exhibition, recreates the beauty of the making of ASo-Oke, which is absolutely wonderful. Except the architecture didn’t quite emphasize the woven beauty. Thanks to me, 🙂 i am halfway designing that cultural landmark Nigeria has yet to offer. A building that celebrates the cultural heritage. Anyone or sponsors interested in keeping Nigeria’s cultures for the next and upcoming generation,, please feel free to contact me.
