WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to announce that Lakin Ogunbanwo is included in the exhibition ‘Dey your Lane!’ as part of ‘Summer of Photography 2016’ in Brussels.
‘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.
The exhibition, curated by Azu Nwagbogu (director Lagos Photo), will take place from 17 July until 04 September 2016 at the BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts, Rue Ravenstein 23, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium.
