No Instapicks today. Boohoo!
However, this post is long overdue!
Remember when I went for NITC 12?
After leaving NITC, I went to Rele with Dorothy, Kanyinsola and Desola.
Rele is an art gallery on Lagos Island that I’d been seeing on blogs and Instagram so when Desola suggested we go, I was all for it.
When we first got there, we recognized it straight away. This is because of the blackish wood-panel wall that we had come to associate with it thanks to people’s pictures on blogs and Instagram.
So first things first, we spent like half an hour taking our own ‘Rele wall” pictures.
After our wall photo shoot, we went inside and my first thought was how much smaller it looked in real life.
The space is nice and clean.
The current exhibition was about crossing lines. As such, most of the art filled their frames and overflowed to the walls like they had no boundaries.
Now, I’m no art expert but I thought this was interesting.
I asked “but after this exhibition, how will they show another when the wall still has this art on it”. Someone said they’d probably repaint the walls over the art which I think is the most likely solution.
One of the exhibitions was by Uthman Wahaab and it centered around fat ladies and solace.Now, let me tell you a story. See these two ladies below?
These two fellas below are in another room of the gallery and are gossiping about these ladies.
