Nigerian contemporary photography

An exhibition featuring 13 Nigerian photographers which brings together the “famous, infamous and non famous” as a way of thinking about Nigerian collective identity in a contemporary world.

The exhibition employs deconstruction as a strategy of critical analysis and seeks to challenge the displaced and misinterpreted Nigerian identity forced on us by addressing commonly held social stereotyping and assumptions. In constructing the photographic identities of the subject many of the portraits on view are taken in various environments and situations which provide a graphic beauty and simplicity as well as a distinctive narrative content in the theatricality of human action.
