The sixth edition of LagosPhoto Festival Designing Futures positions the relationships between African design, the design of Africa and our understanding of how we may design Africa, as the platform to discuss our past, present and future intentions. With history, circumstance and fantasy as significant pointers of the lens-based projects exhibited, Designing Futures highlights crucial aspects of ‘making’ that come into play in African signs and design dialogues. The making of image, identity, desire, ecology, and even culture are explored through advertising, textiles, portraiture, factual and conceptual photography; these offer tangible and esoteric backdrops to how we process, navigate and inhabit the realms of a future Africa.
The extensive POPCAP exhibition with 60 large scale outdoor prints will take place at Yaba College of Technology and will open its doors on Sunday October 25.
POPCAP Exhibition Dates: October 25 – November 27
Location: Yaba College of Technology, Department of Art, Design and Printing, Lagos, Nigeria
Time: 4 pm
