Gele ati Asọ́-Oke Exhibition: Aiming for the Footsteps of Success

The Gele ati Asọ́-Oke exhibition is aiming to follow in the footsteps of the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) Lagos’s 2014 crowdfunded publication of a monograph on Nigerian Photographer J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere. J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere along with Benedy and Sons, Dr Okubanjo and others were the legendary photographers, affiliated with the Universality of Ibadan, who were documenting the city of Ibadan at its height as the seat of government for the then Western Region of Nigeria of the 1950s and 60s.
