Former Guest Projects Digital alumni, resercher and UK-based Nigerian mutidisciplinary artist Chiizii was selected for the opportunity. She will exhibit new work that was in part developed during her Lagos residency alongside G.A.S. Founder, Yinka Shonibare CBE. RA, G.A.S. Director Temitayo Ogunbiyi, G.A.S. alumni, Seyi Adelekun and friends of the Foundation such as Ndidi Dike and Victor Ehikhamenor.
