The British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare is planning to launch an artist residency programme across two sites in Nigeria: one in Lagos and the other in the rural area of Ijebu in Ogun state. Drawing on the idea of Shonibare’s Guest Projects initiative, which offers artists an opportunity to work in his London studio for a month, the artist’s aim with GAS is to bring together established and emerging artists.The GAS Foundation is primarily funded by the Yinka Shonibare Foundation, whose trustees and advisers include the artists El Anatsui, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Antony Gormley and Olafur Eliasson.
