HOUSE OF WAHALA: ART AUCTION

Wura-Natasha Ogunji

With a global art market valued at $63.8 billion and artists receiving the lowest amount of their earned income from the market…it’s time to reinvent the art auction!

House of Wahala–meaning trouble in Nigerian pidgin–flips the script. Artist Wura-Natasha Ogunji steps in as auctioneer and audio guru Emeka Ogboh provides the evening’s soundtrack. All works come from the primary market–that is directly from artists–to you. Featuring work from over twenty-five artists House of Wahala infuses the art auction with the perfect amount of spectacle, humor and political debate. The art auction is finally fun again!
