LagosPhoto invites conceptual artists working with video and performance to attend a thorough and small portfolio review and workshop conducted by the artist Kitso Lynn Lelliott. Kitso Lynn Lelliott’s video investigate the philosophical underpinnings of race that emerged during the European Imperial era, which in turn have resulted in the production of an “Othering”. Her research further delves into the perpetuation of idea of “racially marked beings” with the associated violent omissions, erasure and deletion of knowledges carried in diverse languages.

Participant requirements: Open to all artists working with the moving image. This workshop is geared towards intermediate to advanced conceptual artists who seek a deeper understanding of how concept can drive creation. This workshop is limited to 5 participants, please send a body of work with a short paragraph on your process as an artist to info@africanartists.org for the opportunity to participate.

There are millions of women in the world of photography and now is the time to arrest the process of forgetting that so frequently erases women from the burgeoning histories of photography and shed light on new ways of thinking, showing, discussing and distributing our work. Registration is closed but observes are welcome to attend. Seats are limited so pre-registration is required on Eventbrite.

Artists from the Diaspora cultivate solid links with the continent. Whether intangible (cultural heritage, language, history) or tangible (actions and engagement in their countries of origin), these links contribute redefining the notions of one's own identity and origin. During a panel discussion organised jointly by the AAF,  Institut Français du Nigéria and Artness agency, artists from Nigeria and the Diasporas, international art professionals and curators exchange on questions such as:
How do artists from the Diaspora define and represent their identit.y.ies?
What specific links do they build between their country of residence and of origin?
How do these links contribute to defining their artistic practise and ultimately their own identities?

LagosPhoto in collaboration The Market Photo Workshop, South Africa presents photography that engages time as an intersection of space and meaning. Units of time are shown to contain multiplicities through the representation of city scenographies, relationality between people and space, and individual positions within contemporary histories, all which form a “third space” of interacting temporalities and time- based desires.
