Masquerades – the costumes, songs, poetry, dance, proverbs and other displays that accompany their performances, embody the essence of Igbo culture, history and civilization.
As a way of reviving interest in Igbo culture, preserving the art form and situating them in modernity, the Centre for Memories is curating the art of Chuma Anagbado in an exhibition titled; MMỤỌ.
Mmuo, which translates to ‘spirit’ forms an apt theme for this month-long Solo Contemporary Art Exhibition on Igbo Masquerading, Spirituality, Performance & Visual Resonance. It is a presentation of multi-sensorial aspects of Igbo masquerading – movement, sounds, materials, masks and scent.
This Exhibition opens on August 14 and runs till September 14, 2021.
Opening Day: Saturday, August 14, 2021.
Time: 12:00 PM WAT (UTC +1)
Venue: Centre for Memories. 2 Awgu Street, Independence Layout, Enugu.
