EDL Weekender: A Dennis Osadebe Exhibition and an Iftar Menu

EAT: Honey's Brownie Cheesecake

NOSA: Ordered this for Folly a couple of days ago.

FOLLY: My favorite brownie was from a store on the U.Va. campus. Unfortunately, they changed the recipe and never made the brownie like that again. Anyways, that was the past. Honey’s brownie cheesecake is officially the best brownie I’ve ever had. It’s sooo good.

The cheesecake layer is thinner than I thought it would be, but I love the OVER generous drizzle of caramel. The brownie layer is very rich too, not just chocomilo

 

EAT: The Ramadan Menu at NOK

NOSA: I'm not fasting, but from the instagrams I've seen, the Ramadan menu at NOK looks so so good.

 

LAGOS: Remember the Future Exhibition

Generator-powered rockets launching Nigerian astronauts into space. Nigeria seems to be growing its taste for the great unknown, the final frontier. But what will ‘Nigeria in space’ look like using the context of today’s happenings? And what does technology mean for the realities of everyday Nigerian life? “Remember the Future” is a visual journey into Nigeria’s analogue past and its digital present. The Exhibition explores the idea of mixing traditional materials and crafts with technology and new media. The aim is to question the realities about Nigeria’s contemporary society, including those of power, class, and gender whilst suggesting possibilities for the future.

EMEKA: The whole concept has me interested!

BONUS: CATHARSIS: An Exhibition - Ramon Shitta & Stacey Okparavero

Catharsis, which deals with purification and cleansing via purgation, explores two distinct artists and their use of artistic process to release repressed emotion. Ramon Shitta’s works deal with questions of mental health by exploring images and memories that he had during a period of intense depression. Stacey Okparavero plays with lines to create amorphous forms. She claims that once pen, pencil, rope or copper - some of the many materials she works with- touches her canvas, she is directed through the cathartic process to release these forms. 16/16 is pleased to announce our newest exhibition with works by these two talented artists. Join us on Sunday, June 4th from 2PM to 7PM.

NOSA: Ramon is a friend so you guys should check his exhibition out.

Time: 2:00PM - 7:00PM

Fee: Open to All

Location: 16/16, 8th Floor, Flat 16, 16 Kofo Abayomi Street, Victoria Island (The Old Defence House, opposite the Institute of International Affairs).
