The Ben Enwonwu Foundation in collaboration with the Society of Nigerian Artists and supported by Alliance Française /Mike Adenuga Centre Lagos, launched its inaugural monthly series of talks ‘Point of View’ on September 17, 2019.
Drawing from other creative disciplines and experiences to take a broad helicopter view of the art scene in Nigeria and Africa, ‘Point of View’ aims to encourage support and funding for the visual arts through public and private sector partnership while ensuring continuing professional development and empowerment.
A Case for the Artist’s Resale Right in Nigeria
Conceived as a collaborative platform, the first edition themed ‘A Case for the Artist’s Resale Right’ brought together a diverse line-up of artists, curators, writers, thinkers, wealth managers and policy makers. It focused on the implementation of resale royalty rights for Nigerian visual artists as recognised by the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works.
Raising Capital Against High Value Works of Art
The second edition of ‘Point of View’ titled ‘Raising Capital Against High Value Works of Art’ will hold on October 17, 2019. The title is informed by mounting global interest on art from the continent and a steady growth of the collectors’ base within Africa and especially in Nigeria.
