The Trans-African Road Trip

Since 2009, Invisible Borders Trans-African Organisation has organised road trips from Lagos to other parts of the African continent. It forms a central premise in the Organisation’s attempt to promote an idea of trans-African exchange, within and on the margins of the contemporary art world.

For each iteration up to 10 artists are invited to participate, artists who work in different mediums. Beginning as a photography initiative, the Project has embraced other disciplines, notably literature, film, and performance art. While on the road, the participating artists and the Organisation make a point of sharing real-time photographs, factual and reflective blog posts, as well as video diaries.

As of 2020, there have been nine editions of the road trips. There are more road trips planned from 2021 onwards.
