Retro Africa is a contemporary art platform and gallery founded and based in Abuja, Nigeria. Founded by Abdullahi Umar and Dolly Kola-Balogun in 2015, it was created as a community for art enthusiasts, curators and collectors. Retro Africa provides a platform for emerging and established African artists through a range of creative outlets such as pop-up exhibitions, art fairs, intercultural dialogues and online media. Their aim is to spread awareness and encourage a cycle of growth and learning within the African art scene. In addition to their commercial activities, Retro Africa participates in a yearly charity auction to raise funds for disenfranchised groups and demographics such as internally displaced people or victims of sexual violence and organises a public outreach program aimed at sensitising the younger generation to the wonders of the arts, its career options and possibilities.
