Rele Arts Foundation is proud to announce the third edition of the Young Contemporaries initiative. The initiative identifies, promotes, and mentors young Nigerian visual artists, giving them the tools to succeed critically and commercially in the global art marketplace. 

Five bright, and promising young artists working in diverse mediums with varying degrees of skills and techniques have been selected and highlighted as the ones to watch out for in 2018. Themes in this year’s works include; sexuality, cultural and self-identity, socio-political commentary, and the bipolarity of human nature. The resulting exhibition is an indication of a younger generation contributing their artistic voice to societal issues.
