Now, they come to the boutique residence and creative collaboration space,  16/16. This is the first time they have released their collaboration to the public, and consequently happens to be the launch of our art curation series.Having chosen Low Life as the theme of the exhibition, we have watched the artists take the concept beyond our greatest imagination with a series of acrylic on canvas, graffiti inspired and papé maché pieces. (18 pieces in total)You are one of the first invitees to what we hope will be a revolving door of cutting edge and innovative art experiences. We’ve also made it our mandate to provide affordable pieces for the young aspiring collector and we hope that you will find there is something for everyone on show.

ITAN

Ayo Jaiyesimi’s ITAN (the Story) staged by THESPIAN Family Theatre & Productions is an intriguing award-winning epic play laced with both cultural and contemporary dance and music that will keep viewers at the ‘edge of their seats’! ITAN mirrors the impact of cross-generational conflicts prevalent in our modern day world through the battle for ‘Generational’ supremacy between a village elder, Pa Latinwo and his newly found ‘city gangster’ grandson, Dee-Kay. Both strongly rooted in their beliefs, refuse to shift their grounds. TIME (personified as Asiko) catches up with them and takes them on a journey into the past and future where they discover dark secrets that had been shrouded by the veil of time. Will Asiko’s mediation save the day or tear both worlds further apart?

Time: 3:00PM & 6:00PM

Fee: N1,000

Location: National Arts Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos

Tip of the Day: They will also have shows at the same time on January 2nd & January 3rd.
