What an opening!!! And they just kept smiling for a Trash-ing by Kainebi Osahenye

We were expecting a significant turnout due to the position and popularity of Kainebi within the Nigerian - especially the Lagosian - art community, but this opening surpassed all expectations. Artists, art patrons and friends one hadn't seen in a long time all came on this occasion to celebrate with Kainebi and with CCA,Lagos. I think the faces say it all.
