Fresh off announcing their new curator Ugonna Ibe-Ejiogu (also the designer behind CP Woman Lagos), Terra Kulture brought artists and enthusiasts together for its 9th annual TKMG Art Auction Collector’s Preview & Cocktail night. The special evening which is the flagship event of the TKMG Art Auction house and a collaboration of two Lagos-based art galleries, Terra Kulture and Mydrim Gallery, took place at Terra Kulture, Tiamiyu Savage Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.
As veterans of the burgeoning art scene in Lagos, it was no surprise that the art and fashion set flocked to see some of the pieces up for auction, and to have first choice come auction night.
