ART X Lagos was launched as a dynamic platform to showcase and support the breadth of contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora. Founded in 2016 by Tokini Peterside-Schwebig, the fair has since become a cornerstone of the African art industry. The first of its kind in West Africa, ART X Lagos is a unique cultural event that goes beyond the bounds of traditional art fairs and delivers several days of dynamic art experiences and events.

Since its debut, ART X Lagos has grown to host galleries and artists from over 40 countries and become renowned for its ambitious programme, which includes ART X Talks — a lively panel discussion series; ART X Live! — a one-of-a-kind showcase featuring collaborations between some of the fastest-rising artists and musicians on the African continent; as well as specially curated presentations and interactive projects. These programmes have featured an array of emerging and established artists from the continent and diaspora, including keynote artists such as El Anatsui, Wangechi Mutu, Njideka Akunyili-Crosby, Yinka Shonibare CBE, and Hank Willis Thomas.

ART X Lagos 2023 will take place from 2-5 November at The Federal Palace, Victoria Island, Lagos. The private Collectors’ Preview will be held on Thursday, November 2nd, followed by the VIP Preview on Friday, November 3rd. The fair will be open to the public on Saturday, November 4th and Sunday, November 5th, 2023. Virtual audiences can engage with the fair on Artsy.
