LAGOS, Nigeria; 17 May, 2017
The HERE photo exhibition came to a close on Sunday May 14, 2017 following two weeks of display at the Revolving Art Incubator, Silverbird Galleria, Lagos.
Organized by The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs) in partnership with The Stand to End Rape Initiative (STER), and Revolving Art Incubator. The exhibition focused on telling stories of people who have been sexually abused through pictures.
During the exhibition, the Creative Director for the Revolving Art Incubator, Jumoke Sanwo shared individual stories behind each photo with art lovers who visited the gallery to fully understand the uniqueness of each image.
With the exhibition, TIERs and STER have been able to put the spotlight on the issue of sexual abuse which has become more prevalent recently. They have ignited societal conversations around the subject of sexual abuse which traditionally is not given much attention in the Nigerian society.
