Rele Gallery is Sculpting out of The Lockdown

The Rele Gallery has announced its own gradual easing-out -of-the -lockdown arrangement.

Next Sunday (May 31), it will open an exhibition of sculptures, in virtual space, then allow physical visits by regulated appointments.

The show, Sculpting the City, will be mounted physically in the gallery but accessed by the public virtually.

“Live viewing of the exhibition will be by regulated appointments only”, the gallery says.

Rele explains that Sculpting the City is an examination of the dynamic relationship between the city – as an ever-evolving space, occupied space – and contemporary sculptural practice. Presenting sculptures and installations by Nigerian artists who have found “cities” an important texture in their work, “the exhibition considers the ways in which built space influences and shapes artistic expression in contemporary Nigerian art”. 

Rele says that the bodies of work featured “were carefully selected to expand the existing discourse on current modes of sculptural expression and to also explore the dialogue between object and audience”

“You can also reach us via email and phone and video call (WhatsApp) – (+234) 8093215460”.
