Laphto Art Gallery (LAG) occupies a large, bight and airy space on the top floor of Laphto Mall. Being one of the newer art spaces in the city of Addis Ababa (it opened its doors in 2012), LAG enjoys a modern esthetic and is frequented by many artists, collectors, curators and art-enthusiasts. LAG showcases multifaceted and diverse projects including paintings, sculptures, photography, multi media, installations and more. The gallery aims to provide artists with opportunities for experimentation and education, using its spaces to hold exhibits not only by local but also international artists, and organizes panel discussions to stimulate art dialogue across geographical and cultural boundaries.The displayed works of local as well as international artists are all available for purchase.
LAG is a proud host of an annual exhibition dedicated to artworks by female artists. This annual event was initiated as a way to give female artists a specialized platform to introduce their artwork and network amongst a community of fellow female talents; providing them with skills and encouragement to continue with their creative pursuit despite the harsh realities faced by many female artists in Ethiopia, who have little to no workspace and are challenged to keep their talents alive and incomes stable within the imposed societal expectations of becoming a wife and mother.
