Afriart Gallery is proud to present two exceptional artists at this year's edition of Art X Lagos: Sungi Mlengeya and Henry 'Mzili' Mujunga.
ART X Lagos was launched as a dynamic platform to showcase and support
the breadth of contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora. Founded in
2016 by Tokini Peterside-Schwebig, the fair has since become a
cornerstone of the African art sector. The first of its kind in West
Africa, ART X Lagos is a unique cultural event that goes beyond the
bounds of traditional art fairs and delivers several days of dynamic art
experiences and events in a happening now complemented virtually
Since its debut, ART X Lagos has grown to host galleries and artists from over 40 countries and become renowned for its ambitious programme, which includes ART X Talks — a lively panel discussion series; ART X Live! — a one-of-a-kind showcase featuring collaborations between some of the fastest-rising artists and musicians on the African continent; as well as specially curated presentations and interactive projects. These programmes have featured an array of emerging and established artists from the continent and diaspora, including keynote artists such as El Anatsui, Wangechi Mutu, Njideka Akunyili-Crosby, Yinka Shonibare CBE, and Hank Willis Thomas.
For its seventh edition — and its most ambitious to date — ART X Lagos will bring together over 120 artists from over 40 countries across Africa and the diaspora, presented by 31 leading international galleries, for an expanded programme of live exhibitions, talks and performances and a virtual fair on ARTSY for the benefit of global audiences.
This edition will run from 4 to 6 November, 2022, at The Federal Palace in Lagos, with the private Collectors' Preview and VIP Opening Reception taking place on 4 November.
