According to the initiator of the project, MsOyindaAdelumola, The Ibadan Affordable Art Fair as an “idea, came about because Ibadan was once the centre of art and culture and we want to put Ibadan back on the map for art, making it a focus and locus in addition to Lagos, which is already densely concentrated by expanding the market for art away from Lagos and bringing more people to the art collecting fold. We eagerly look forward to seeing you there and hosting you to another delightful and revealing art fair.”
