Intersections: Njideka Akunyili Crosby

April 13, 2017 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: CEMEX Auditorium - Map Link

FREE. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Nigerian-born, LA-based artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby’s artwork tells elaborate and delicate stories of her life. Densely layered figurative compositions conjure the complexity of contemporary experience. She describes them as “contact zones, spaces where cultures come together and grapple with each other,” bringing viewers into a “weird in-between space.”  

Akunyili Crosby will be in conversation with Jodi Roberts, Robert M. and Ruth L. Halperin Curator for Modern and Contemporary Art at Cantor Arts Center and Catherine Hale, Curator – Creative Campus Galleries at Sheridan (Toronto).
