Priceless, a solo exhibition by award-winning visual artist Yusuf Durodola, will open on September 21 at Nike Art Gallery, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos. Priceless, which will run till September 27 is a visual chronicle that probes our nation’s disagreeable scenes affecting our core value.
“My art probes deeply into matters of concern threatening human existence, it aspires to reactivate the people’s mind towards positive actions of germane development,” Durodola said.
It is a project that is centred on social engagement and intervention. It highlights individual responsibility and dispositions to human value. He recalled how the exhibition was inspired by his interaction with children as an arts teacher. He said: “Children are pure spirited and hold no negative energy and if adults can take a cue from this, it will greatly heal our ailing world.”
The show is in three stages – performance, solo exhibition and community service engagement. Durodola plans to donate 18 art works to the physically-challenged home, having worked with them in the past.
