Temporary Exhibitions, Lathrop, Jaffe, and Hall Galleries
This inspiring exhibition of metal "tapestries" and other sculptures by El Anatsui, one of Africa's most powerful contemporary artists, celebrates Africa's rich artistic and cultural heritage. El Anatsui uses found objects such as metal liquor caps and other discarded materials to create spectacular metal cloths, including Hovor, which the Hood Museum of Art recently acquired, and two recently completed works that will be exhibited for the first time. The works in this exhibition references broader concerns about the adverse affects of globalization, consumerism, and waste. Organized by the Oriel Mostyn Gallery in North Wales, United Kingdom, this is El Anatsui's first solo exhibition to travel the United States.
