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

For its eighth edition, the fair’s theme 'The Dialogue' will place an emphasis in this unique year, on conversation and community, and will see audiences raising their voices on these present challenging times, not just for Nigeria, but on the continent and globally. ‘The Dialogue’ seeks to elicit reflection, conversation and discussion, to move towards seeing beyond the dilemmas we experience, and encourage us to imagine the here and now differently.

Joining the conversation will be a tightly curated selection of ten invited galleries, each of whom is contributing to the visual arts ecosystem across Africa and the Diaspora in a unique way, enabling the exhibiting artists and gallerists to live out their role as important voices in the ongoing global conversation.

ART X Lagos has become renowned for its ambitious program, which includes ART X Talks - a lively discussion series; ART X Live! - a one-of-a-kind music showcase; ART X Cinema - a film theatre; and specially curated projects.

The eight edition fair will be held from 2 to 5 November 2023 at The Federal Palace in Lagos.

The Federal Palace, 6-8 Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria
