Red Door Gallery Lagos opened in 2013 with the primary aim to give a global platform to emerging contemporary artists of African origin. Their artists challenge the stereotypical and predictable definitions of what “African Art” should look like or how the art should make the viewer feel. Indeed, in the new world that Red Door gallery is creating, the phrase “African Art” does not exist. What they are promoting is contemporary art that has been influenced by Africa. At Red Door, the core belief is that art must have a message that breaks all boundaries, builds bridges, deepens understanding and creates a stronger human race who have found a common language for expressing love, frustration, anger, joy, anxiety and other emotions without any unintended consequences. The gallery has featured at international art fairs and has held over 30 exhibitions in Lagos, London, Geneva and Johannesburg.
