The ‘Losing Daylight’ exhibition, which will be unveiled temporarily in Lagos on October 1st and 2nd, 2023, is poised to be a landmark event in the history of Nigeria’s film industry.

‘Losing Daylight’ is an exhibition that celebrates the rich history of Nigeria’s film industry. The exhibition is named after the phrase often used by filmmakers racing against time, and it features a wide range of artefacts and memorabilia, including film posters, costumes, and props.

The exhibition will traverse the colonial era of the 19th century, the golden age of Nigerian cinema, the era of home video films, and the vibrant new Nollywood era. Exhibits will include vintage costumes, movie scripts, rare footage, historical news publications, iconic posters, VHS cassettes, captivating prop installations, and other never-before-seen items, promising visitors a nostalgic voyage through time.

This two-day event is curated by talent agent and film history collector, Taiwo Adeyemi. The ‘Losing Daylight’ exhibition will be open to the public on October 1st from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM and on October 2nd from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM at 37 Glover Court, Ikoyi

This pop-up exhibition is a prelude to a major one-week exhibition scheduled for December 2023 at the EcoBank Pan African Centre in Lagos, Nigeria, welcoming visitors from around the globe to embark on a multisensory journey through a century of moving pictures.

The exhibition is proudly presented in association with EcoBank Nigeria,, Zikoko, BoxxCulture, and Q21 Solutions.
