WHAT WE DO
The Foundation for Contemporary and Modern Visual Arts is a not-for-profit organization set up to uplift Contemporary Art in Nigeria, by documenting artworks found in diverse private and institutional collections, by producing documentaries on these collections and artworks and by publishing art monographs on same. So far, the Foundation has shot four documentaries (Kolade Oshinowo, Yusuf Grillo, the Collection of the Obi of Onitsha and David Dale); and is working on two other episodes to be released later this year.
The Foundation also supported in the publishing of the monograph; OSAGHAE – Visual Chronicles of a Society in Flux, it recently released a coffee book monograph on the art master, Kolade Oshinowo and annually, it publishes the Nigerian Art Market Report. The FCMVA has so far documented approximately 12, 000 (Twelve Thousand artworks) since its inception in 2014; many of these art pieces are stored in a customized retrievable database managed by the Foundation.
