About our gallery

Retro Africa is a contemporary art  gallery and platform based in Abuja, Nigeria. Led by founder and artistic director Dolly Kola-Balogun, since 2015 we have fostered a community of artists, enthusiasts, curators and collectors.

Retro Africa provides a platform for emerging and established artists through a range of creative outlets such as curated exhibitions, art fairs, intercultural dialogues and our online media. Our aim is to spread awareness and encourage a cycle of growth and learning within the African art scene.

Retro Africa is an inspiring gallery and a much needed breath of fresh air for the cultural scene in Abuja


Incredibly well curated art in a beautiful space. Highly recommend dropping in. Nothing else like it in the city.
