Artist Talk: Nnenna Okore says
Born in Australia and raised in Nigeria, Nnenna Okore has received international acclaim for her installations, in which she reclaims and reconfigures organic or discarded materials into abstract, richly-textured forms of extraordinary range and nuance.

Okore’s talk will reflect on cultural and environmental influences that have shaped her visual aesthetics. The artist will also discuss the significance of her materials and processes, and the essence and energy they seek to capture.

Okore is the second artist selected for the Brooks Museum's Rotunda Projects series. Her installation will on view from November 16, 2016 until April 2, 2017.
