Last year, the Yemisi Shyllon Museum of Art issued an open call for curators with cutting-edge and socially significant exhibition ideas from which we can develop powerful educational programmes, and engage the Pan-Atlantic University Community and young non-art audiences in Lagos and beyond.
We received a ton of incredible proposals, but we narrowed them down to those that fit with the goals of the exhibition. We trust their curatorial concept can advance society and the YSMA goals. It offers the chance to present pieces from under -the radar collections in addition to the rich museum's rich collection.
We are thrilled to announce our winners with you!!
