[ WELCOME ]
A 20-foot, reclaimed shipping container-turned-creative incubator is just what you've been missing in your life.
As a space for creativity and experimentation, we host a quarterly rotation of exhibitions curated by Lokko House and its affiliated brands. We do this by working in collaboration with top artists, photographers, designers and other creative personalities from near and far.
[ ARTIST ]
OF THE MONTH
Michael W. Soi is a Nairobi-based artist who launched his practice in 1995 after completion of his studies in fine art and art history. In his work, he tackles current issues in politics, and offers a satirical take on the topics that occupy our public imagination. Soi draws inspiration from contemporary life in Nairobi. His work can be read as a kind photographic diary of Nairobi, offering commentary on social, economic and political trends.
"African art is functional, it serves a purpose. It's not a dormant. It's not a means to collect the largest cheering section. It should be healing, a source of joy. Spreading positive vibrations."

IN THIS SPACE
what's coming & what's been
The Container [ Accra ] is a space for artists, dreamers, doers, enigmas and rebels (with and without a cause) to showcase their vision and work. With a huge following and links deep into Accra's creative scene, exhibiting in our space provides our artists with a community, a presence and a following. For our crowd, it provides a gateway into another world entirely.
