By Tajudeen Sowole
An initiative of the National Gallery of Art (NGA), Abuja, in conjunction with the Art Galleries Association of Nigeria (AGAN), Art Expo Nigeria scheduled to hold at the National Museum, Onikan, Lagos from tomorrow through August 31, 2008 is designed after the popular international event, ArtExpo New York.
The parent event celebrated its 30th year of existence last February. Every year, the event also hold in Toronto Canada, as Toronto ArtExpo and Art Expo London, among other countries.
According to the NGA, many countries all over the world organise Art Expo annually or biennially. The nation's apex gallery listed some of such events around the world: "They include, Art Expo Chicago, Art Expo New York, Art Expo London, Art Expo Malaysia, Art Expo Berlin, Art Expo South Africa and Art Expo Las Vegas. Art Expo Las Vegas for instance, has been consistent for over 29 years."
It will be recalled that on Thursday, March 13, this year, NGA held a gathering of stakeholders and deliberated on how to organise what it called Visual Art Expo. Tomorrow's event, Art Expo Nigeria, is the product of that gathering which had earlier gave birth to the gallery operators body AGAN.
At the National Museum, venue of Art Expo Nigeria, few days ago, the organiers, briefed members of the media on the preparedness of AGAN to host the event.
