It’s only a day to ART X Lagos, a new art fair designed to widen Nigeria’s connection to the contemporary art scene in Africa and the rest of the world.

ART X Lagos will launch from Friday November 4th to Sunday 6th 2016, with an annual 3-day art fair and exhibition that will inspire Nigerians, bring the international art world to Lagos, and place the city of Lagos on the global cultural map as a cosmopolitan destination.
