Arthouse Foundation

Arthouse Foundation


The Arthouse Foundation is a newly created non-profit initiative of Arthouse Contemporary, West Africa’s leading auction house of modern and contemporary art.

With a newly renovated building in the heart of Ikoyi, the Artist Residency Programme is at the heart of the Arthouse Foundation’s activities, offering live/work residencies throughout the year in three-month sessions. Each resident artist is offered a studio space, mentorship, art materials and logistical support for the creation of a new artistic project during their residency that engages the city of Lagos.

Artist residents will donate one work of art created during the residency period to the Arthouse Foundation. 


The Arthouse Foundation Residency Programme includes an intensive public initiative throughout each residency, including an artist’s talk, workshop, open studios and roundtable discussion. The Arthouse Foundation Residency Programme culminates in an end of the year exhibition showcasing the resident’s new artistic projects.

Accommodation Information 

The residency includes a communal living space with television and wireless internet, and a separate full kitchen.

Studio Information 

The residency features two artist live/work studios, each equipped with artist work tables and outdoor working space.


The Arthouse Foundation is situated in within a cultural hub of Lagos' artistic community, nearby iconic venues such as the National Museum, the Polo Club, Muson Centre, Bogobiri, and Jazz Hole.
