Arthouse-The Space presents Transgrexion, a solo exhibition of photographer George Osodi. This exhibition profiles George Osodi’s prolific photographic career with the inclusion of six distinct bodies of work. From his iconic photographs documenting the oil crisis in the Niger Delta to the quiet images of daily life in Lagos, George Osodi explores the fascinating beauty, struggle, and uniqueness of contemporary Nigerian culture. His acclaimed book Delta Nigeria – The Rape of Paradise raised awareness for environmental problems in the area and cemented Osodi’s reputation as a leading international photographer. Osodi’s newest photographic series, Nigerian Monarchs, features portraits of traditional royal leaders that span the diverse ethnic tribes of the country. This exhibition marks the first time that this new project has been shown in Nigeria.
