About the Museum
The Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos (CCA, Lagos) is an independent non-profit making visual art organisation. It was set up in December 2007 to provide a platform for the development, presentation, and discussion of contemporary visual art and culture. It seeks to create new audiences and to prioritise various media such as photography, film and video, performance and installation art which have been under-represented in Nigeria. It supports and presents the intellectual and critical work of art and culture practitioners through exhibitions, public programmes especially lectures talks, seminars and screenings as well as through workshops. It also encourages and promotes the professionalisation of art production and curatorship in Nigeria and West Africa by collaborating with artists, curators, writers, theorists and national and international organisations. It aims to develop a programme that will reflect the diversity of practice, ideas and approaches in the contemporary visual art and culture and provide a public forum for the critical examination of ideas and cultural practices in the arts.
