NEW NIGERIA STUDIOS


This exhibition presents the stories of select photographers, filmmakers and protesters who took to the streets of Nigeria in October 2020. Here, viewers are invited to browse different perspectives of a collective outcry for new approaches to governance. Featured artworks spotlight a selection of experiences during this period, across 17 states in Nigeria. The presentation of these works considers how physical experiences are increasingly communicated, navigated and expanded through online space. Displayed across 21 digital, interconnected rooms, groupings of these works focus on recurring themes including justice, hashtags and language that describe connections facilitated via social media. This approach captures how and why this pivotal moment in Nigerian history must be remembered, through reasons that transcend ethnic lines and state borders. It connects diverse Nigerian citizens who seek and envision change across this nation. In moving forward, and perhaps above all, this selection radiates a strong belief in the transformation that will usher in a New Nigeria.
