Titled, ’AREWA?’, this exhibition presents a deep and nuanced look at Northern Nigeria, featuring its various cultures, its people and the predominant ideas that make up Northern identity in today's Nigeria. With a long history of Negative Stereotypes fuelled by the media where northern parts of Nigeria have been seen to have alot of insecurity, violence, underdevelopment and more, Aisha walks us through the historical and cultural necessity of this exhibition, and its need for demystifying the preconceived views of the north.

With a whopping 40 Artists and over 80+ works, This exhibition will be the first of its kind at the museum and probably the most comprehensive curatorial undertaking of Northern Art to date.
