It’s NIGERIAN APPRECIATION DAY! ..Or at least, it might as well be, with all the great things I share about Nigerians in this video. Inspired by my book review of Teju Cole’s book, Every Day Is For The Thief, I share 5 Things I’ve Learned About Nigerians. (PS. There’s a little surprise 35 seconds in.)

EXHIBITION: Meschac Gaba: Museum of Contemporary African Art at Deutsche Bank KunstHalle, Berlin, Germany from September 20 – November 16, 2014

“My museum has no walls,” says Meschac Gaba it is, “not a model … it’s only a question”. His twelve-room installation, acquired in 2012, is the largest single work Tate has purchased to date. The Museum of Contemporary African Art 1997–2002 has no permanent place, but has been shown temporarily in different variations in museums all around the world. Now, seven rooms from this seminal work will be on view for the first time in Berlin to mark the beginning of a co-operation between the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle and Tate Modern.

African art is functional, it serves a purpose. It’s not a dormant. It’s not a means to collect the largest cheering section. It should be healing, a source a joy. Spreading positive vibrations.
