Nigerian Art Show

Throughout October the Nigeria Art Society UK is celebrating Nigeria’s centenary with an art show at the Waterloo Action Centre (WAC) Gallery at 14 Baylis Road, Waterloo, London. Nigeria@100: Transforming a British Experiment? is a group show with a variety of styles reflecting Nigeria's cultural heritage from colonialism to the present day. Shown is Titus Agbara's excellent painting of children braiding one another's hair. Its title Apprehensible meant nothing to me. Titus kindly explained that Apprehensible is traditional person-to-person learning as opposed to Western-style education. CLICK to view more art.
