Dear Friends of Art Twenty One,
Join us today at 5PM for the opening reception of Fragile by renowned German Artist/Photographer Wolfgang Tillmans in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Lagos.
Following on stops in Kinshasa, Nairobi, Johannesburg, Addis Ababa, Yaoundé, Accra and Abidjan, German artist Wolfgang Tillmans’ Fragile comes to Lagos. The work of Wolfgang Tillmans occupies a prominent position in the contemporary art world. His oeuvre encompasses pictures of club culture in the 1990s, abstract works based on extreme formal reduction, the beauty of the everyday and pictures of the sublime, a sensual gaze full of physical desire and an analytical perspective with great social and political awareness. His approach can be seen as an appeal for freedom and invitation to meet the other fearlessly and with open-minded curiosity. For Tillmans, acceptance of the fragility that determines us as individuals and that plays into our relations with each other is not a weakness – it is a great strength.
On course of the opening reception, there would be a conversation at 6:30PM with the artist Wolfgang Tillmans featuring Papa Omotayo as the moderator.
We look forward to welcoming you at our space!
The exhibition opens to the public on May 28th, 2022 until July 10th, 2022.
