ART X LIVE! 2020







ART X Live! Presents:
“Like No One’s Watching



ART X Lagos will present an evening of experimental visual art and music curated by Faridah Folawiyo and Lanre Masha. The virtual has taken centre-stage in 2020, and for this year’s edition of ART X Live!, the curators ask what it means for an artist to create in a year like this, what it is like to create without an idea of one’s audience. The musicians and visual artists will work together, with the result of that collaboration being ART X Live!, allowing the artists the ultimate freedom; creating without the anticipation of immediate consumption, criticism, or acclaim. ART X Live! 2020 is sponsored by Tangerine.
