New York, NY
Beginning June 2, 2014, ten artists working in photography, film, literature, and performance art will travel by road from Lagos, Nigeria to Sarajevo, Bosnia, spending a total of five months together and crossing up to 24 countries in the process. The work produced during the road trip will investigate issues of migration, movement, identity, trans-Africanism, intercultural exchange, and artistic collaboration. This fundraising event aims to contribute essential support for Invisible Borders in realizing the 2014 Lagos-Sarajevo trip. 

Since its founding in Nigeria in 2009, Invisible Borders has made four road trips across more than a dozen African countries. The photographs, films, and writings from the project have been exhibited in Berlin, Bern, New York, Paris, Accra, Vienna, N'djamena, Khartoum, Addis Ababa, and Brazzaville. Invisible Borders, and founder Emeka Okereke, were part of the Al Jazeera's New African Photography documentary film series in 2013. The road trips have been featured widely in major international media, including CNN, and included in The New Museum's 2012 Triennial "The Ungovernables."
Invisible Borders has thrived on the goodwill and support of a number of individuals and cultural partners since its inception. Organized in collaboration with The Walther Collection in New York, this event will also provide a forum to discuss the ideals and accomplishments of the project. 

All contributions are tax-deductible. For information on contributing, email: or visit
