Following the launch of its programme in May 2022, Guest Artists Space (G.A.S.) Foundation is pleased to present An Unfolding Prelude, a group exhibition of works that were developed during, and adjacent to, the first six months of residencies.
Miriam Bettin is the second of three curators based in Germany to join us at G.A.S. Lagos as part of the TURN2 Programme. The initiative developed by the German Federal Cultural Fund was conceived to facilitate artistic co-creation between Germany and African countries. We asked Miriam to share her hopes and aspirations for the two-month residency with us.
Applications are now open for the Access ART X Prize. The Prize awards early-career artists from Africa and its Diaspora with opportunities to develop their practices, with the intention of setting them up for the highest levels of success on the global stage. Formerly open only to Nigerian emerging artists, The 2022/3 edition has evolved to include an additional award in collaboration with Guest Artists Space Foundation that is open to emerging artists from all of Africa and its Diaspora, in a bid to buttress sustainable careers for a wider range of artists.
We look back at what G.A.S. Fellowship resident Ofem Ubi was able to achieve during his time with us in Lagos.
Tate Curatorial Assistant Hannah Marsh joins Baff Akoto for a conversation exploring themes of self, movement and memory in the context of migration and identity; concepts that are critical to both their practices.
