Rele art gallery has announced the Young Contemporaries for 2018- Yasser, Habeeb, Dandelion, Abisola and Samuel.
Through the young contemporary program, Rele Art Gallery gives selected artists a platform to exhibit their works, inspire them and prepare them for a career in the arts.
The 2018 young contemporaries have undergone curatorial guidance, mentorship from professional artists and were awarded grants to create a new body of work. Their works will be exhibited from January 14, 2018.
The young contemporaries program includes a schedule of mentorship sessions, portfolio review and studio visits as a means to deepen the knowledge of the artists in preparation for a career in the arts. This class of 2018 visited Peju Alatise who gave them invaluable advice.
