Work-in-Progress re-launches at CCA,Lagos at 2pm on Saturday 20th Nov, 2010


Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos re-launches the professional development platform called Work-in-Progress on Saturday the 20th of November 2010. 2pm

WIP provides an opportunity for artists, critics, curators to present a project during the developmental process and in return receive constructive critiques from an engaged audience.Work-in-Progress provides a much needed platform to flesh out problems, elaborate on ideas, to explore varied possibilities and to get feedback from colleagues.The aim is to tackle the isolation cultural practitioners sometimes feeling in creating new work and developing their idea and moving to an advanced level in their work and experimentations.

Expected Results include:

  • presenters benefit from early feedback from their peers and colleagues.
  • Presenters can hone their ideas further, take what is useful, play around with what is not so useful and make useful what is useless.
  • Presenters can develop their communication skills and learn to articulate their ideas fully within 15mins.
  • Audience member will also develop their communication and critical skills. They must be able to convincingly substantiate/argue their points for and against a particular idea.

WIP 2 Saturday 20th November 2010 2pm - 4.30pm

Andrew Esiebo, Photographer, video artist

Andrew will be exploring new creative territories, integrating multi-media practice with the investigation of issues on football, sexuality and identity.

Abraham Oghobase, Photographer

Abraham will present We Are All Human Beings This current body of work is about previously inhabited spaces, vacated apartments in my neighbourhood in Maryland, Lagos that echo with the life they once harboured. The ghost of things that former occupants (childhood friends, a primary school teacher) left behind form a history that is hard to ignore, hence my desire to explore them.
