The 2018 Ruth K. Franklin Lecture on the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas: El Anatsui in Conversation
Internationally acclaimed artist, El Anatsui will be in conversation with Sylvester Ogbechie, professor of art history, UC Santa Barbara. The work Uwa by the artist is in the Cantor's permanent collection and is currently on view in the Thomas K. Seligman gallery. Anatsui is known for large-scale sculptures, composed of resources typically discarded, that draw connections between consumption, waste, and the environment.
We gratefully acknowledge support from the Ruth K. Franklin Lecture and Symposium Fund.
