IN THE GALLERY

Fragile by German Artist/Photographer Wolfgang Tillmans, at Art Twenty-One, 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”-Art Twenty One Gallery.

Junkman shows “Waiting for Bus” at Alliance Francais

Dil Humphrey-Umezulike, better known as Dilomprizulike (born 1960 in Enugu, Nigeria) is a contemporary artist working in sculpture, performance and painting who has adopted the moniker “The Junkman From Africa“. In his work he recycles and transforms heaps of old clothing and other detritus found on city streets, creating sculptural installations and performances that reflect the disenfranchised situation of many African people. He created the “Junkyard Museum of Awkward Things”, a sculptural environment built up from found objects, in Lagos and has also made a version of it for the Oriel Mostyn Gallery in Llandudno, Wales.

Waiting for Bus, his latest installation, is on view at Alliance Francais, Mike Adenuga Centre, 9 Osborne Rd, Ikoyi

MUSIC

SUGA’S Sunday Show @ Shades

Lagos City’s largest indoor Bar plays host to the widely acknowledged O’Suga Band this Sunday. The group christened: Sugarman &The Crossroad Band, is beloved in the barroom circuit for the extensive strumming antics of its acoustic guitarist. But the singers are also as comfortable with rendering afrobeats (Naija Hip Hop, Naija R&B) as the guitarists are adept at stretching the rock effect, so the band delivers a full bodied, diverse sound range, fit for the multiracial crowd at the Shades bar on Sunday evenings.

Venue/Dates/Show Time: Shades, No 1, Anifowoshe Street, Off Kofo Abayomi, Victoria Island: May 29, 2022. Time: 7pm.
