MOWAA

  • Event date 6 - 13 October
  • Event location London
Christie’s is proud to collaborate with the Museum of West African Art (MOWAA) in Nigeria to raise funds for MOWAA’s Rainforest Gallery and the Nigeria Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2024. Original works donated by Yinka Shonibare, Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, Lakwena Maciver, Victor Ehikhamenor and more will be offered as part of the 20th/21st Century: London Evening Sale on 13 October, the Post-War and Contemporary Art Sale on 14 October and in First Open: Post-War and Contemporary Art Online.

Proceeds from the sale of the works will go towards MOWAA initiatives including the presentation of the Nigeria Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia, 2024 — commissioned by the Governor of Edo State and curated by Aindrea Emelife — and the 20-acre Creative District, including the Rainforest Gallery. Designed by the Dakar-based architecture firm Worofila, the Rainforest Gallery will be dedicated to showcasing modern and contemporary art, as well as historic exhibitions.
