After a successful hybrid exhibition at the Alliance Francaise Michael Adenuga Centre, a women themed showcase titled, “Above All, Women Without’. was held bringing dignitaries from all walks of life.
The exhibition curated by visual artist and creative photographer, Aize Mohammed Paul, had additional pieces of art which awed the participants who came for this as they were taken to another level of ecstasy as they viewed from a virtual and physical media and the colours and ambience were a sight to behold. There were also female dancers at this exhibition who serenaded the crowd at the Alliance Francaise Michael Adenuga Centre.
Speaking on his inspiration, Aize noted that the theme borders on women because ‘without them, there is no life. I added two new paintings to the work I have, having worked for weeks and it is in continuation of the narrative of life and death and our interaction with the space.
Also speaking on the success of the show, Marc Berbant, Director of the Alliance Francaise Michael Adenuga Centre, said the turn out was impressive as Aize’s creativity shone like a million stars attesting to the reason the project was granted.
Berbant added that tbe centre have selected seven project in the African Arts to hold and also nine exhibitions, both solo and combined formats out of seventy applications. He noted that the Alliance Francaise is at the center of supporting African arts be it in music, poetry, visual or other creative arts as the cultural heritage of every society is respected and worthy of exploring by the french cultural network.
Chin Chin Umah, Cultural Coordinator of the Alliance Francaise said, “The event was to provide a platform for Nigerian creatives. At the Alliance Francaise, it is a bi-literal exchange to promote language and culture. The success of these over the years have opened doors for the creatives
