Known as ‘Little Lagos’, Peckham is home to one of the largest Nigerian diaspora communities in the UK. Lagos, Peckham, Repeat: Pilgrimage to the Lakes is a major group exhibition looking at the connections between Lagos in Nigeria and Peckham in South East London.
The exhibition highlights the relationships, culture, shared history, communities, and art that link the two places. The themes explored include transnational exchange, a sense of place, and the contemporary metropolis.
In the bustling megacity of Lagos, there’s a popular saying, “No Food For Lazy Man”, that encapsulates the city that never sleeps. This saying extends into the hearts and minds of those who emigrate in search of a different life.
Ogboh is known for his multi-sensory exhibitions and has made several collaborative beers with breweries all over the world.
