Artist List 2017

I C A F Lagos 2017 Participating Artist List

The Vernacular Art-space Laboratory (VAL Foundation) is delighted to announce its list of participating artists for ICAF Lagos 2017. The theme of ICAF Lagos 2017 is “Still No Longer At Ease.”

Most times, as the Obi/Clara issue suggests, in No Longer At Ease by Chinua Achebe, the essence of humanity is questioned with the ideology of the “others,” that lacks dialogue and inclusion with that of the “others” and this is where both the title of the novel and the tragedy that it narrates become relevant to our focus on migration and refugeeism this year.

The artistic director of ICAF Lagos, Aderemi Adegbite, and Abraham Oghobase will co-curate the 2017 edition of the festival, which will open on December 6th and run until December 10th 2017 in Iwaya community.
