Next week a new exhibition opens at the Nat. Museum of African Art.
Earth Matters: Land as Material and Metaphor in the Arts of Africa April 22, 2013-January 5, 2014
It opens on Earth Day (April 22). Ecology is a theme of the show as explained by the curator in the preview video seen HERE.
I am particularly excited to see the land art installations of Ghada Amer, El Anatsui, and Strijdom van der Merwe. I’ll post more info here as it becomes available. I think some articles on these articles may be in the near future too.
Until then here are some of the artists’ webpages, (click name for link):
El Anatsui (his website is under construction, but you can learn about him from his Art21 segment, HERE.)
