Àkéte Art Foundation
Lagos, Nigeria

To support the fourth edition of the Lagos Biennial, dedicated to the theme of refuge, as well as the participation of US artists and speakers. Featuring an international cohort of artists in a multilayered exhibition mounted at Tafawa Balewa Square, the biennial reaches toward a reimagined future in which alternative forms of community and togetherness would flourish. Founded in 2017 by a group of artists, the Lagos Biennial facilitates the presentation, production, and critical reception of contemporary art through research and exhibitions, public programs, and an oral history training program for the rising generation (ages 17–22). It embraces innovative artistic approaches and aims to address current social and political issues, engage new audiences, and establish new modes of interaction.
