Ekundayo, Godspower, others headline Artpedia Nigeria

ARTPEDIA NIGERIA

In a bid to boost the country’s art scene, Artpedia Nigeria has launched a new gallery space tagged ‘The Persistence of Time’, a group of art exhibitions featuring top contemporary artists, and curated by Kennii Ekundayo

The exhibitions, which bring together 28 paintings from the gallery’s collection, feature artists such as Ada Godspower, Elizabeth Ekpetorson, Frederick Idele, Ikechukwu Ezeigwe, Habeeb Andu and Sejiro Avoseh.

The title of the exhibition is borrowed from the 1931 iconic painting of Spanish artist, Salvador Dalí, one of the remarkable artists of the Surrealism art movement named ‘The Persistence of Memory’.

It presents a school of artistry that has been shaped by time through individual experiences and social events and distinctively marked by the capricious forms and precise reflections of the unconscious mind.

The exhibition is said to theorise the influence of time in artistic innovation, as this is reflected in the interconnectedness of the 28 randomly selected and displayed artworks by six artists who have independently produced each body of work at different times since 2017.

Established in November 2020 by an avid art collector, Onomen ‘Nomzky’ Onohi, the exhibition is said to be the first in the Artpedia gallery space.

It boasts of a diverse range of authentic and affordable artworks crafted by leading contemporary artists. Its primary objectives are to spotlight the best creatives in Nigeria and Africa; influence art appreciation; democratise art education; deepen and grow art followership and ultimately, make the engagements and conversations around art a cultural norm.
