ART/world: The National Theatre, Lagos and Erhabor Emokpae

Here is this week's ART/world installment on the recent controversial restoration of the National Theatre (Lagos) sculptural friezes designed by the Nigerian artist Erhabor Emokpae (1934-1984). Let me say is again that what happened to Emokpae's work is unacceptable. It is despicable. This is one moment you wished there is an art police and justice system, so you could haul the perpetrators to face an art judge!
