Rele Gallery is pleased to announce the first of the ‘Lagos: Hustle and Hope’
exhibition series. The exhibition, which will run for three weeks, will open with a
reception from 6pm on March 25, 2015, at 5 Military Street, Onikan, Lagos.
Lagos: Hustle and Hope captures the dynamic nature of the city-state Lagos and
the hustle that characterizes its aspirational residents and their hope for a better
future. The exhibition features talented photographers based in Lagos, who have,
either in the course of personal adventure and/or career, travelled the length and
breadth of city, capturing the beauty and unexpected moments.
Lagos is home to about 17 million people who believe it is the land of dreams, yet
the rate at which the city changes has always been a source of amazement; the
people, a repository of stories; and the living itself a roller coaster.
The past four years — over which these works were created — have been a period of
growth for Lagos, economically and population-wise. Lagos: Hustle and Hope
reflects the last four years while looking forward to the next four.
The exhibition will be interactive in nature, featuring a polling booth installation
that simulates the election process, in the spirit of what will be the most decisive
general elections Nigeria has seen since the return to democracy in 1999.
“The ‘Lagos: Hustle and Hope’ exhibition is curated by Adebola Rayo.
