Since its launch in 2016, five highly successful editions of the art fair have firmly anchored ART X Lagos not only as a cornerstone of the Nigerian art and cultural scene, but as one of the most exciting emerging art fairs on the global calendar.

The ART X Prize, currently titled The Access Bank ART X Prize, is the leading prize for emerging artists in Nigeria, created to bolster the efforts of emerging artists who have demonstrated a commitment to careers as professional visual artists.

In the absence of infrastructure that exists in other international centres for contemporary art, the Prize was launched to contribute to the burgeoning contemporary art sector in Nigeria.

ART X Live! is a fusion of live music and visual art, that provides a platform for expression and experimentation to Africa’s dynamic young creators.

Launched in 2016, the platform orchestrates exciting collaborations between some of the fastest-rising visual and sound artists on the continent.

For its first virtual edition in 2020, necessitated by the global pandemic and political climate in Nigeria, ART X Live! presented ‘Like Someone’s Watching’, a performance film weaving together music video performances, interviews, digital artwork and a DJ set.
