there is much to be gained, especially in terms of contemporary art. For instance the inception of Video art in Nigeria, beginning formally through oneminute foundation workshops in both Enugu and Lagos, followed by the Lihna Imagineria workshops developed by Miguel Petchkovsky (Time_Frame)and held at the Centre for Contemporary Art Lagos.
October 2009 saw the opening of the first international video art exhibition curated by Nigerian curators Oyinda Fakeye and Jude Anogwih which further cemented the role of video art in the Nigerian contemporary art scene. The exhibition was accompanied by a publication which featured writings by Solange Farkas (videobrasil), Goddy Leye (Art Bakery), Krydz Ikwuemesi (Univerisity of Nigeria Nsukka) and others. It’s also important to mention the work carried out by the Goethe Institute to further develop the medium with a successful workshop hosted in April 2010.
