In conclusion of the second week of CCA Lagos' institutional residency at G.A.S., CCA Hosted I Hope Your Rambles Have Been Sweet, and Your Reveries Spacious, a 3-hour workshop facilitated by Rosie Olang’ (⅓ of the I Continue to Continue collective). The three-hour letter-writing session reflects on themes of growth, grounding and transit as CCA Lagos continues to mark 15 years since its founding by the Late Bisi Silva in 2007.
The workshop will contemplate provocations such as; What milestones would you like to reflect on in your own practice? What rituals do you return you individually and in the community as a practitioner in the contemporary art scene? What interest are you currently tending to and how can that be represented intertextually?
