Adenrele Sonariwo  Curator | Gallerist Founder: @relegallery @artsummitng

Feeling grateful for the community of passionate people that worked on the #daydreamesoterica project and for support systems who called in at various points to encourage us. 🙏🏽
Special appreciation to everyone that took time out to see the show over the weekend. We know openings aren’t the best time to enjoy the works, lol but we love that you still come through and do not take it for granted. May God honor you, even as you honored us ❤️ Exhibition officially open and runs till the 30th of June, 2019. ✨

Standing in front of the central work in #DaydreamEsoterica. 💙This large scale painting “We the people and other dreamers” acts as an introduction to the city of Lagos. It is at first deceptive of its announcement as it incorporates light colours such as pastel yellow and light blues suggesting Lagos as a composed city. On closer look, the painting unveils itself, revealing layers of individual personalities.
No photograph you see online does the works in this exhibition justice. You must see for yourself and if you’re in Lagos, hope to see you today from 3pm at @relegallery 🙏🏽.

Found a nice view of the interactive art work “The Vessel” (behind me). Taken from the inside of “The Shed” before catching a performance. The Shed is an institution created so artists can take creative risks and push artistic boundaries. ❤️

Ayobola is fire! 🔥And this Sunday at @relegallery is to celebrate her first solo exhibition. I’m not sure anyone could have predicted how much she would have evolved back at the inaugural edition of the Young Contemporaries where she also emerged as grant awardee at the time (Now every artist gets a grant 🙏🏽) .
.
Yet, we are not surprised, Ayobola as an artist, teacher and scholar is focused, disciplined and dedicated to her art👏🏾 .
.
It is a joy to be able to welcome her back 3 years after with “Resilient Lines”, a timely exhibition that succinctly unravels the deep rooted characteristics that informs and forms what it is to be a woman in Nigeria today.👸🏽. Opens from 3pm tomorrow! ✨
