Forme Femine is pleased to present Ebuka Pascal Agudiegwu, Ogochukwu Ejiofor, and Yewande Oseni at the inaugural edition of NXT.ART pavilion by Africa NXT, displaying new works that comb through layers of social, familial, and cultural influences in an attempt to examine identity and current space - evaluate the past and embrace forward thinking.
Selected artists apply varied creative expressions entrenched in cultural patterns through figurative paintings, surrealism, gold leaf, acrylic, and mixed media; serving as a lens in analyzing prospective avenues for dialogue and engagement across the continent. This new collection weaves alternate realities into a growing blueprint that gives African descendants a foundational stance in creating their futures.
Centering the African feminine as the focal point of artistic representation, these artists spawn in-depth commentary on social progress within the 'Afrosphere,' in an attempt to reclaim African agency and reimagine new ways of being.
Date: 1st March - 4th March, 2022.
Venue: Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos Nigeria.
