On Sunday, May 17th, Jack Shainman Gallery marks the first anniversary of The School with an exhibition of work by El Anatsui and an afternoon of celebration featuring local food trucks and fare, photo booth, and a special musical performance by Imani Uzuri.
El Anatsui was recently awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement, the Venice Biennale’s highest honor. This solo exhibition will be a comprehensive survey of his work, from early projects in painting, wood, and clay, to the monumental metal works for which Anatsui is renowned. The School’s 24-foot ceilings will highlight the majestic scale that has become a hallmark of his oeuvre.
Opening reception: Sunday, May 17th, 1pm - 4pm
The School, 25 Broad Street, Kinderhook, NY.
El Anatsui Five Decades exhibition will be on view through September 26, 2015.
