ExhibitionPartner ProjectVanishing Voices

September 10, 2018by Tabula0

Everyone is specially invited to our sound installation VANISHING VOICES Exhibition Opening.

Of the world’s 6,000 languages, 2,000 are spoken in Africa and 500 in Nigeria alone. As a result, the latter – as far as linguistic diversity is concerned – occupies the third place in the world, surpassed only by Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. Europe, by comparison, has only 120 languages.

In order to prevent Nigeria’s unique polyphony from falling silent forever, eight artists recorded different languages – endangered or not – to be presented in a vast, collective sound installation.

Featured Artists: Emeka Udemba, Ndidi Dike, Adéola Ọlagunjú, Halima Abubakar, Eluehike Ralph, Aigberadion Israel and Kayode Oluwa, Ologeh Otuke Charles, and Jere Ikongio.

Vanishing Voices is curated by Alfons Hug and Uche Okpa-Iroha.

Date: Wednesday, 28th June, 2017
Time: 11AM
Venue: Goethe-Institut Nigeria, 4th Floor, City Hall, 30 Catholic Mission Street, Lagos Island, Lagos.
