Africa & Contemporary Art

Haven't blogged for a while. While I see some bloggers made a resolution to post everyday, I decided to only blog if I had an interesting photo or comment to make. Sort of like only eating when you're hungry!

Yesterday I spent the entire afternoon at two NYC galleries that featured the work of contemporary African artists. The Skoto Gallery in Chelsea had a solo show of major pieces by the artist El Anatsui.

These "cloths" are created from small pieces of metal from bottle tops, "sewn" together with copper wire!
