IN CONVERSATION

Our visitors respond to this 30-second video.

  • All the art hanging from the walls reminded me of maps with mountains and oceans.

    — Felix

  • These are maps of the spirit world.

    — Virginia

  • And humanity's connection to it.
    They show the holes you can climb through to greet them. They allow El Anatsui to speak to them.

    — Virginia

  • I've noticed three connections through out the body of work, the physical and mental ability to mold metal and wood into positive and negative shapes. The physical shape of each piece whether it was flat or round, and the mass that creates space and weight in the each piece especially in the piece on the ground. I almost forgot! The movement in everything! My eyes are never focused in one area, I love it !

    — Angel Morales

  • How people smile when they are in these galleries, especially the first. I love his desire to "bring the artist out of people."
