Collecting Memory; Looking Forward

“What vehicle do we have to push our memory, our experience, our warm feelings into the future?” – Marilyn Nance

This exhibition explores the importance of documentation as a vehicle for collecting and extending memory across generations. It aims to show how documentation has helped the formation of narratives around the contemporary Nigerian creative scene.

It features works from Nigerian photographers such as Chukwuka Nwobi, Wami Aluko, Moyosore Briggs and Andikan, who have intimately documented the people and culture of Nigeria’s creative scene over recent years.

Curated by final-year BA (Hons) Culture, Criticism and Curation student Damilola Ayo-Vaughan with various collaborators, the exhibition uses a rotating format with new works on display every two weeks.
