Independence Day Activities 1st Oct 09 at CCA,Lagos

Whilst the country continues on in auto-pilot mode in the absence of any visible leadership, we at CCA,Lagos celebrated 49 years of Independence of our beloved country. The turnout was incredible, hosting a full house of the literati, art students, visual artists, gallery owners and visiting curators. A very mixed crowd indeed making for an charged but diverse conversation about art and literature in Nigeria and within a wider context.
