Life in My City Abuja Exhibition
Opening on Thursday July 16, 2015 at 6pm
Life in My City Art Festival (LIMCAF) is a celebration of young and talented Nigerian visual artists. It is the largest annual gathering of artists and stakeholders of visual arts in Nigeria.
Started in 2007 to encourage artistic creativity and awareness of environmental issues, it provides space through art for young people to make meaningful statements about the lived environment in Nigeria. It also encourages and empowers young artists throughout Nigeria by promoting and commercializing their creative endeavours on a national and international platform.
This year sees the 9th edition of what had become the most consistent and most expressive art festival in Nigeria.
The theme is Beyond All Odds. In all spheres of existence, humanity is faced with challenges which severely test the resilience of the human spirit. In confronting these existential issues, man has relied on his ingenuity, resourcefulness, innovative and improvisational abilities as survivalist modes. For the artist, these attributes can be creatively applied, using the different channels of artistic media.
The second round of the competition feature a week-long exhibition of selected artworks in each zone. This is the Abuja exhibition.
It will take place at Thought Pyramid Art Centre (map below) and the exhibition will last until Thursday 23rd July 2015.
