The [Re:]Entanglements is an exhibition featuring works by leading contemporary Nigerian artist Abass Kelani. The exhibition is the outcome of a collaboration between the [Re:]Entanglements project, the Lagos-based Kelani, and the National Museum, Lagos.
It will feature a series of new contemporary artworks by the artist, which respond to archival holdings in the National Museum of Northcote Thomas photograph albums. This will be the first exhibition at the National Museum that focuses on the Museum’s archival collections, and that brings together contemporary art and colonial archives.
The exhibition will include displays of the original albums and juxtaposes Kelani Abass’s new works, produced in various media, with large scale digital prints of pages from the albums.
So head to the National Museum, Lagos, from September 21 to October 21 2019 to view these works.
