LAGOS & DAKAR

The World Stage

    The World Stage: Africa, Lagos ~ Dakar features paintings from Senegal and Nigeria. For this exhibition, Wiley’s models mimicked historical public sculptures from Dakar, Senegal, and Lagos, Nigeria. This series brings into focus African youth in both cities, and highlights local representations of power and calls attention to the ways that black youth seek to represent themselves outside of colonial and national modes of representation, often by turning to African diasporic forms such as hip-hop to gain visibility outside dominant visual regimes.
