Over the past four months CCA, Lagos has presented a dynamic and diverse perspective on the idea of love through performances, performative and interactive installations, videos and films. The public programme has included a roundtable on Performance Art in West Africa with artists from Nigeria, Ghana and Ivory Coast. A literary perspective was provided by authors, poets and a playwright, highlighting the different variations of love. As this unprecedented transatlantic collaboration with The Menil Collection, Houston, and Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, St Louis, comes to a close at the Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos, love is celebrated through the performance of Jelili Atiku in a moving tribute to a father that he never had the opportunity to meet.
