Rele Presents THE 2016 YOUNG CONTEMPORARIES


In line with our aim to trigger a newfound appreciation for the arts and help nurture a new generation of visual artists, we have in the past year been observing, collecting and supporting young talents whom we believe have the right balance of potential, work ethic and drive to occupy a new roster of accomplished artists in the future.

Believing that the time is nigh for their artistic voice to be amplified and boldly predicting that they will be ones to watch out for and to shake up the art establishment in the nearest feature, we proudly presents these artists anew to the world in an introductory exhibition.

The exhibition features Logor Oluwamuyiwa, Dipo Doherty, Yadichinma Ukoha-Kalu, Eloghosa Osunde and Ayobola Kekere-Ekun.

Each artist possesses a unique voice, eye and message and have created conversational work that addresses urgent, topical issues, showing that contrary to popular opinion, the young (and yes, the artistic ones) show a commitment to engage the space around them and contribute to pressing matters arising.

We hope you can join us.
