Around Town : El Anatsui at the Brooklyn Museum

Posted by

I saw the most amazing exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum entitled "Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui."

The show was comprised of 30 works by contemporary artist El Anatsui. The most stunning piece in my opinion is Gravity and Grace, a gigantic aluminum and copper tapestry that stretches 36 feet (!).

Below is a video of art handlers at the Brooklyn Museum installing several of the show's gigantic wall pieces.

 

It's El Anatsui's first solo exhibition in a New York museum and is totally worth the trip. It's on view until August 4th. Click here for more information.
