Yes, the week was rife with traffic and boss issues, but we are here; we survived.
You have probably longed for a fully-funded vacation; somewhere where there are no phones or even people (shouting ones) and one that will stretch for maybe a month.
Sounds about right, right?
But definitely not this weekend.
Trust me, this weekend’s line-up of events is crazy!
Hangouts that will make you wanna dance from Lagos to London!

SMO Contemporary Art is delighted to curate CONVERGENCE, an exhibition of recent works by Obi Okigbo, which explores the artist’s fascination with how our belief systems, behavioral patterns, and aesthetic values have been shaped by ancient art and mythology from different cultures and eras. Okigbo’s experimentation with Indian ink on linen, silk, paper, and canvas touch on universal themes of transcendence. Her powerful portraits of heroes of African descent are “ a celebration of collective memory, the archetypal quest for the Self and the truth of our existence”. Join us for the Artist Talk and the Exhibition Opening on SUNDAY, 24 Nov at Wheatbaker from 1 pm!
Time: 1:00PM – 5:00PM
Fee: Open to All
