In celebration of the Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos’ 3 year
anniversary, artists who have engaged with the centre over the last
three years have been invited back to interpret their experience with
CCA around the theme of Independence. Artists were given the gallery
space as a studio from 3rd – 17th December to develop and present a
body of work, with one restriction, work produced must be Green.
Artists selected work with a variety of medium including; painting,
photography and video art and were provided with materials from which
to develop the work. The resulting exhibition draws from their various
artistic backgrounds and collaborative efforts to present independence
through the eyes of contemporary Nigerian artists.

call for proposals

:: Call for Curators ::
Guest Curator Project
2011-2012 Program

Action Art Actuel [AAA] is putting out a call to exhibition curators. For a third year, AAA is making its spaces available to a curator for a series of 5 exhibitions, enabling him/her to play a crucial role in determining AAA’s 2010-2011 programming. In doing so, AAA hopes to support innovative curatorial practices and the dialogue surrounding them. Furthermore, a series of exhibitions, residencies, on-site and off-site events will run parallel to the programming

The curator will have the mandate to present a series of five exhibitions on a theme of his/her choice. The proposed program may include 1 or 2 residency projects for a 6 to 8 week period of research and production. We also encourage performance elements that may be combined with the opening of certain exhibitions. A publication documenting the exhibitions and the research associated with them will be produced at upon completion of this third year of curatorial-based programs.
