El Anatsui

I went to an amazing exhibition this past weekend at the Brooklyn Museum called Gravity and Grace. The artist El Anatsui creates monumental pieces out of bottle caps, metal shards, and cans from a distillery in Nsukka, Nigeria where he originates. His colorful wall hangings are tapestry-like and flow weightlessly despite the materials they are created with. This exhibition will be up until August 18th. Well worth it to check it out for yourself. For more information, visit brooklynmuseum.org.
