A contemporary art space with a growing international reputation, Rele Gallery was established to act as a critical interface between Nigeria, Africa, and the international art worlds. With two current locations in Lagos, the biggest city in Africa, it is a major player on the continent. Since its inception in 2015, it has curated critical and commercially successful exhibitions within and outside the African continent.

The gallery marries two symbiotic purposes, to offer art for public engagement and nurture the creators of the art, bringing the world to their work, exposing a larger, global audience to African contemporary art. The gallery has been featured and mentioned in publications such as Financial Times, LA Times, BBC, Guardian, Vogue to name a few.
