SMO Contemporary Art: WANDERLUST
July 10 @ 8:00 am - September 9 @ 8:00 pmOpen to All
The Wheatbaker’s summer art exhibition, WANDERLUST, explores the “why” behind cross cultural, cross border, mental and physical journeying. WANDERLUST is an exhibition of 40 paintings, drawings, photographs and mixed media works by six leading and emerging artists with strong roots in Germany and Nigeria: Chidi Kwubiri, Dilomprizulike (popularly called “Junkman of Africa”), Emeka Udemba, Numero Unoma, Yetunde Ayeni-Babaeko and Jimmy Nwanne. These internationally celebrated artists explore the concept of ‘wandern’, a term of Germanic origin, drawing on our collective desire to travel and explore. Responding to a frequently polarized and fragmented world, these artists explore the internal and external aspects of Wanderlust vis-a-vis the modern reality and ancient roots of exploration inspired by the quest for safety, economic prosperity, education, and conquest, or simply for recreation, refreshment, and enrichment.The exhibition runs until mid-September and is supported by Deutsche Bank, Still Earth. Holding, the German Consulate of Lagos, ELALAN, and Louis Guntrum Wines.
