Rele Lagos presents Subtle Textures exhibition in new space
Rele Gallery, formerly based on 5 Military Street, Onikan, Lagos is moving to the Ikoyi area of the state.
And for the gallery’s inaugural exhibition, it presents a group exhibition titled “Subtle Textures” featuring works by Osi Audu, Annick Kamgang, Sedireng Mothibatsela, Kelani Abass, Papa Omotayo and Temitayo Ogunbiyi.
The exhibition, according to a statement, explores the generative qualities of drawing and line in creating composite forms and spheres of knowledge.
“As the gallery moves into a new space, a blank canvas for the playing out of future possibilities, the fluidity of drawing and its capacity for transformation forms an essential starting point. Here, line becomes a promise, one of vast potentiality reproducing endless possibilities in space,” says the statement.
The gallery, which says it is pleased to be transitioning into the new Lagos space this Sunday, May 1, 2022, hopes everyone can join them at 32D, Thompson Avenue, Ikoyi, from 1 pm-3 pm for a children’s tour. The exhibition, which requires an RSVP to attend, will be open to everyone from 4 pm-8 pm.
“This new space located in Ikoyi is reflective of the gallery’s growth and is a stronger commitment to our community here in Nigeria, as we continue to fulfill our mission to trigger more audiences into appreciating, engaging and collecting art from Africa. In this new space, art lovers will now have richer experiences with multiple exhibitions and programming happening concurrently”.
