The first of two solo exhibitions; 'Anti-Art' by Olatunde Alara, opens at @strangerlagos on the 12th Aug (2pm-8pm) till the 20th of August Olatunde Alara seeks to highlight Avant-garde themes/practices as valid forms of depicting/critiquing contemporary experience within the Nigerian context; outside the traditional and often conservative methods, through practical experimentation with various mediums, collaborations, reclaiming public space, while emphasizing a DIY ethic. This time it's no different, and in his first solo show of the year, ‘Anti-Art’; a new body of work is inspired by the ‘Modernist’ canon and inspired movements; such as ‘Abstract/Expressionism’, ‘Minimalism’, and ‘Color Field’ paintings; to help contextualise Abstract art; as historically relevant and a legitimate form of expanding and enhancing aesthetic/thematic/visual experience in Nigerian art. #art #abstract #contemporaryart #exhibition #lagos #nigeria
