About Labarin

Labarin is a Nigerian contemporary art and culture blog. Founded in 2017, Labarin covers photography, visual art, music, film and theatre. The blog includes features on art, film, music and performance, highlighting notable new exhibitions around Nigeria and Africa and showcasing photography.

The magazine’s primary focus is on contemporary visual art, design and photography. We publish reviews about local and international arts exhibitions and just about anything culturally significant around Nigeria and Africa. For further information, email

We believe that contemporary art and culture should mirror society while enriching people’s lives, and how we live.
