Female artists continue being underrepresented in the Nigerian Art scene, despite their continuous and valuable contributions to its growth and development. In collaboration with Curator Olufisayo Bakare, the YSMA attempts to address this disproportion through 'The Invincible Hands' Art Exhibition, giving credence to the individuality, voices, and creativity of women artists.
Across time, Nigerian artists have engaged with their indigenous cultures and socio-political milieu to reflect the conscience of their society. The Mirroring Man exhibition attempts to reflect the conscious and unconscious reflection of nationalist thoughts, political ideals and socio-cultural themes through art.
It's official! With just a few clicks, you can now step inside Nigeria's first university museum of art and interact with masterpieces of the Yemisi Shyllon Museum of Art, Pan-Atlantic University (YSMA) on its partner page!
The YSMA gladly received Alimi Adewale's 'Mother Earth' on September 10, 2021, as an addition to its permanent collection. The elegant brass sculpture can be found right at home in our Sculpture Park!
