DEY YOUR LANE ! LAGOS VARIATIONS

‘Dey your Lane!’ is a typical Lagos expression for ‘mind your own business’. When you realise that Lagos is one of the fastest growing cities in the world, with a population of over 18 million, you can imagine this phrase comes in handy. With photography, video and soundscapes, the exhibition depicts the individualistic and creative dynamic generated by the huge city. See how the inhabitants of this megalopolis appropriate the public space and make their personal and collective ambitions come true. This exhibition is accompanied by a great selection of Nigerian cinema, literature and contemporary dance.
