In conjunction with Arewa, Me Too

Combining the local term for northern Nigeria (Arewa), and the global hashtag-turned-social-movement against sexual violence (#MeToo), Arewa, Me Too is an exhibition highlighting the gravity of domestic and gender-based violence in this region. Featuring photography, painting, and film by Nigerian women artists, the exhibition dialogues with current realities and examines the future of a generation threatened by policies that restrict freedom.

Arewa, Me Too is an invitation into a safe space, where support systems are present, and healing is visible.

Arewa, Me Too, curated by Favour Ritaro is on view at 21 Malam Isa Hassan Road, Unguwan Dosa in Kaduna, Nigeria, from February 5 - March 5.

Participating Artists:
Halima Abubakar, Maryam Umar Maigida, Judith Daduut, and Martha Panshak Dasat.

Favour Ritaro is a Nigerian curator based in Lagos, Nigeria. A 2019 fellow and member of the Association of Art Museum Curators in New York, her research and curatorial practice takes a critical view of issues surrounding identity representation and nationhood, gender and sexuality.
