CRIMMD Museum celebrates Nigeria’s Democracy Day with historic exhibition

As the nation prepares to commemorate Democracy Day on June 12, art enthusiasts and history buffs alike are invited to a special event that promises to celebrate Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage and political evolution. 

The CRIMMD Nigeria History Museum is set to unveil its much-anticipated exhibition, “Nigeria in Transition: An Exhibition on Postage Stamps, Currency, and Beverage Bottles,” offering a unique lens on the nation’s journey from military rule to democracy.

According to a statement from Goethe Institute, the exhibition will open with a cocktail event at the National Museum, Onikan, at 3 pm on June 12, 2024. This marks the third installment of the Museum Conversation series, part of the “Connecting the Dots” project facilitated by Goethe-Institut and supported by the Ford Foundation. The event will feature a visual essay by Bayo Omoboriowo, highlighting key moments in Nigeria’s transition to democracy through his fellowship work at CRIMMD Museum over the past six months.

Guests will have the opportunity to engage in a stimulating exhibition talk with distinguished panellists and presentations by participants of the “Connecting the Dots” Youth Art Education Programme. This multi-sensory display invites attendees to revisit Nigeria’s illustrious past, rekindle old memories, and critically examine the events and decisions that have shaped the nation’s design, material, and political landscape.

In addition to the visual and historical displays, an interactive art session will allow guests to design their own postage stamps, providing a hands-on experience to reflect on the exhibition’s themes.
