Artists were given the use of the gallery space as a studio from 3rd – 17th December to develop and present a body of work, with one restriction, the work produced must be Green. Artists selected work with a variety of medium including; painting, photography and video art and were provided with materials from which to develop the work. The resulting exhibition draws from their various artistic backgrounds and collaborative efforts to present independence through the eyes of contemporary Nigerian artists.
