Ugonna Ibe-Ejiogu, Curator Terra Kulture Art Gallery stated:  

“I am very excited about Lagos Art Auction 2018, as we have an even stronger collection of works, a number of them have already been reserved. For the first time, as part of the program, we are giving two emerging artists the opportunity to showcase their work and benefit from expert critique by notable artists and seasoned collectors.
