ARTalk: Earth Matters

Fowler Museum

North Campus at UCLA, Los Angeles, 90095

4:00pm

Exhibition preview and gallery walkthrough with Karen Milbourne, Curator of Earth Matters: Land as Material and Metaphor in the Arts of Africa. Art workshop facilitated by Corrie Siegel.

 

Earth Matters: Land as Material and Metaphor in the Arts of Africa is the first major exhibition to examine the conceptually complex and visually rich relationship between African artists and the land upon which they live. The exhibition features more than one hundred exceptional works of art from the 19th–21st centuries, including examples by many internationally recognized and emerging contemporary artists from the continent and its diasporas—all of whom draw on the land for inspiration. Earth Matters examines the most poignant relationships that Africans have with the land, as a sacred or medicinal material, as the site of mining and burial, as a source of inspiration, and as an environment in need of protection. This teacher walkthrough with curator Karen Milbourne explores the multilayered and interdisciplinary connections teachers may draw from the exhibition Earth Matters: Land as Material and Metaphor in the Arts of Africa. Teachers will have an opportunity to discuss connecting themes within their classroom while engaging in a hands on clay workshop that explores earth as material and inspiration with Corrie Siegel, Education Manager at the Fowler Museum.
