El Anatsui's exhibition at Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art

El Anatsui's exhibition at Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art

We have also another amazing exhibition by El Anatsui which is happening at Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art. The artist has consistently worked to transform the formal possibilities of African sculptural idioms. Over 50 years, he has repeatedly revised and reinvented his material and compositional techniques to astonishing effect - from the early smaller wooden reliefs with their incised markings and broken ceramic forms, to the monumental outdoor cement sculptures, and, more recently, the vast and spectacular metal wall and floor works, which blur the boundaries between sculpture, painting and assemblage. Mark your calendars to check out this exhibition.
