Arthouse Foundation Organises Artist Talk and Workshop with Victor Ekpuk
In conjunction with Victor Ekpuk's four month residency, Arthouse Foundation organised a series of public programmes that engages his work with the arts community in Lagos. The Artist Talk was held at the Kia Showroom on October 3, 2015, where the artist spoke about the evolution of his artistic practice and his past projects. Ekpuk presented his recent exhibitions in venues such as the Havana Biennale and the Hood Museum of Contemporary Art, Dartmouth College, among others. Ekpuk was joined by Dr. Kunle Filani, artist, art critic, and historian, who moderated a discussion after the artist's presentation.
Victor Ekpuk facilitated a workshop entitled "Drawing Is Basic" on October 5, 2015 at the temporary residency studio at Arthouse Contemporary, Ikoyi. The workshop, which included twenty participants that ranged from emerging artists to arts enthusiasts, explored exercises in expressing ideas in lines and forms. This workshop was free and open to the public.
