In this archived episode of Radio Art Center, the Des Moines Art Center's Director of Marketing and PR Christine Doolittle sits down with Associate Curator Laura Burkhalter to talk about the exhibition Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui, which was on view at the Art Center from October 25, 2013 through February 9, 2014.

The celebrated work of El Anatsui strikes a rare combination of stunning beauty, labor-intensive process, and deep metaphorical and poetic meaning. A global artist, Anatsui draws on artistic and aesthetic traditions from his birth country of Ghana; his home in Nsukka, Nigeria; and various Western art forms. Anatsuiā€™s work is about transformation. Using found materials such as printing plates, milk tin lids, and aluminum liquor bottle caps allows the artist full freedom to improvise and invent.

Gravity and Gra: Monumental Works by El Anatsui was organized by the Akron Art Museum and made possible by a major grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
