Press Release

ART X Lagos was launched as a dynamic platform to showcase and support the breadth of contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora. The fair, founded in 2016 by Tokini Peterside-Schwebig, has since become a cornerstone of the African art sector. The first of its kind in West Africa, ART X Lagos is a unique cultural event that goes beyond the traditional bounds of an art fair and delivers several days of dynamic art experiences.

Since its debut, ART X Lagos has grown to host galleries and artists from over 40 countries and become renowned for its ambitious program, which includes ART X Talks – a lively panel discussion series; ART X Live! – a one-of-a-kind showcase featuring collaborations between some of the fastest-rising artists and musicians on the African continent; as well as specially curated presentations and interactive projects. These programs have featured an array of emerging and established artists from the continent and diaspora, including keynote artists such as El Anatsui, Wangechi Mutu, Njideka Akunyili-Crosby, Yinka Shonibare CBE, and Hank Willis Thomas.

For its seventh edition – and its most ambitious fair to date – ART X Lagos will bring together over a 100 artists from across Africa and the Diaspora, presented by over 30 leading international galleries. ART X Lagos 2022 will deliver an expanded program including ART X Talks, ART X Live!, and specially curated projects both in person and at the online fair on ARTSY.

The seventh edition fair will be held from 4 to 6 November 2022 at The Federal Palace in Lagos.
The private Collectors’ Preview and VIP Opening Reception will hold on Friday 4th November.
