Het Nieuwe Instituut and hiphophuis invite you to the opening of the exhibition Wey Dey Move by architect and creative director Dele Adeyemo, where choreographers Sunday Obiajulu Ozegbe, Babayemi Afolabi Osokoya and the dancers of hiphophuis present their masquerade opening performance on The Podium at Het Nieuwe Instituut.
Through films and an installation, the Wey Dey Move exhibition takes you to Lagos, chasing the sounds and rhythms of Afro-pop, Amapiano and Afrobeats. Follow the beats onto the streets, where people organise their own parties and festivals between market stalls on one side and under-construction tower blocks on the other. Wey Dey Move celebrates the evolution of the urban landscape of Lagos as a self-made hub of creativity.
