The second edition of Rele Gallery’s interactive exhibition will feature the works of three artists; May Okafor, Patrick Akpojotor and Obinna Okerekeocha.
Tagged ‘IN-TER-AC-TIONS’, the aim of the exhibition is to “offer fresh perspective on how art can be perceived and engaged with, and to deconstruct the concept of how art can interact with a space”.
The three artists are expected to explore the issues of migration, urban development and globalisation with their works of art.
