Exhibition: Money Must Be Made by Lorenzo Vitturi at Flowers Gallery
10 May 2018
Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by London-based Italian artist Lorenzo Vitturi. The works in his new series Money Must be Made are based at the Balogun Market in Lagos, Nigeria, one of the biggest markets of its kind in West Africa.
Located on Lagos Island, Balogun Market sprawls from street to street under the shadow of the now unoccupied Financial Trust House. In its heyday, the twenty-seven storey Financial Trust building was the tallest on the island, housing western corporations and banks. While Vitturi’s previous project Dalston Anatomy reflected on the gentrification displacing local businesses in London, Vitturi explores the inverse situation in this area of Balogun Market, where its thriving business is causing global corporations to relocate.
Private view on Thursday 10th May, 18.00 – 20.00
HOURS & LOCATION Friday 11th May until Saturday 30th June Ongoing Tuesday to Saturday, 10.00 to 18.00
