The fourth edition of one of the biggest art fairs in West Africa, ART X Lagos will hold from 1st to 3rd November 2019. The ART X mission is to represent the city, country and continent, as ambassadors on the global stage, and to continue to reach a broad international and local audience.

Every year since ART X kicked off it has brought together art patrons, exhibitors, sponsors and stakeholders, who have collectively supported ART X.

This year, Tayo Ogunbiyi will be taking over as the Artistic Director. Tayo follows the late Bisi Silva, our 2016 Artistic Director, and Missla Libsekal, who curated our Talks Program and Curated Projects in 2017 and 2018. With over a decade of expertise in the visual arts sector, working as an artist, curator, and consultant, Tayo will be instrumental in art programming and commitment to delivering cutting edge and unique artistic experiences.
