IN CONVERSATION

Our visitors respond to this 30-second video.

  • I see a connection to the Baroque. The fluid curves out of a hard initial material remind me of wall tombs by Bernini and others in the churches of Rome.

  • The idea of drawing out the artist in the viewer really struck me. His willingness to give over his work to someone else's vision is so amazing.

    — GirlGriot

  • "Art" and local craft.
    The connection between Anatsui, his culture and the people involved in making the works are a powerful message of a collaborative local process that can be shared on an international stage.
