Art X Lagos Returns from Hiatus

West Africa’s biggest annual art fair is once again opening its doors to visitors, having made last year’s event online-only to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Highlights include textile pieces by Marie-Claire Messouma Manlanbien, portraiture from Nigeria’s Juwon Aderemi and the photography of Moroccan-born Mous Lamrabat. Art X Lagos is also showcasing digital works, known as Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs), by a number of African artists. This year’s event, which began on Thursday, will run in-person until Sunday and will continue online until 21 November.

We are committed to Africa

Unlike many global publications, for nearly a decade we have been committed to showing a complete picture of Africa – not just a single story.  Offended by one-sided coverage of wars, disasters and disease, the founders of Africa.com created a website that provides a balanced view of Africa – current events, business, arts & culture, travel, fashion, sports, information, development, and more.
