Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui
February 8–August 4
The Brooklyn Museum presents this show of pieces by El Anatsui. The show features more than 30 of the Nigerian sculptor's works, including a dozen floor and wall coverings that resemble relief maps, composed of thousands of bottle caps. The work picks up on traditions from Nigeria, Ghana (Anatsui's birthplace) and abstract art.
