About Retro Africa

Retro Africa is a contemporary art gallery based  in Abuja, Nigeria, that was created in 2015 as a community of art enthusiasts, curators and collectors, headed by founder and creative director Dolly Kola-Balogun. We provide a platform for emerging and established contemporary artists, with an emphasis on African art. Through a range of outlets such as exhibitions, art fairs, intercultural dialogues and our online media. Our ethos is centred around a desire to spread awareness and encourage a cycle of growth and learning within the African art scene.

Retro Africa equally  organises public outreach programs, workshops and residencies in collaboration with our partners in the industry, aimed at sensitising the younger generation to the merits of visual arts, their career options and potential global influence.

Retro Africa has at the core of its mission to explore and partner with a wide selection of contemporary artists, within Africa and its diaspora.

These established and emerging artists are contributing to the remarkable evolution of the continent’s creative industry. Africa’s contemporary art scene is being paved by an extraordinary list of ingenious creatives whose aesthetic, innovation and intellect has shaped the industry for a future generation. Through visual arts they have been empowered to interpret and portray Africa’s socio-political realities, economic challenges, rich history, traditions and diverse beauty, these leading and emerging artists continue to influence the evolution of contemporary art in Africa.
