Like A Virgin... Lucy Azubuike & Zanele Muholi

SATURDAY 7TH FEB 2PM

THE MOST PROVOCATIVE EXHIBITION OF THE YEAR


Like a Virgin... Lucy Azubuike and Zanele Muholi. This is an unmissable exhibition of two rising African women artists who defiantly put sexuality and the body at the centre of their work and challenge stereotypes within a patriarchal society.

PANEL DISCUSSION 2PM SAT 7TH FEB

The panel discussion promises to be enlightening and at times controversial. But then what is Art about if it continues to reinforce taboos. We have an interesting and critical panel including exhibiting artist Lucy Azubuike, emerging South African curator Gabi Ngcobo (co-curator of Cape Africa in 2007), artist and art historian Ken Okoli from Ahmadu Bello University. It will be moderated by Hansi Momodu, CCA,Lagos .

Cultural Stimulus with PAGES

PAGES, is the confluence of literature, art works, comics and photography. This programme is designed to converge fictionist, poets and playwrights at the Centre for Contemporary Art,Lagos, to give literary interpretation to the works being exhibited at the centre every month. Art is art. Be it literature, painting, poetry, pottering or sculpturing. This is the reason why Kowry Kreations Media, an African art and culture organization came up with this unifying concept in collaboration with Centre for Comtemporary Art,Lagos (CCA,Lagos) The first edition of the programme will be held at the centre.

Writer Jude Dibia reads excerpts from his novel, Walking with Shadows and joins the panel discussion in highlighting some of the themes about the body and sexuality. Walking with Shadows has been described as "A thought provoking tale of denial and the politics of African male sexuality" .
