Gallery Talk: Amanda Gilvin: Fatimah Tuggar
Join Amanda Gilvin, Sonja Novak Koerner '51 Senior Curator and Assistant Director of Curatorial Affairs, in examining Fatimah Tuggar’s work through a discussion of Home’s Horizons, a major solo exhibition that investigates history, technology, and the home. Free and open to the public.
Multimedia artist Fatimah Tuggar (b. 1967, Kaduna, Nigeria) interrogates the systems underlying human interactions with both high-tech gadgets and handmade crafts. Now based in Kansas City, Mo., Tuggar is renowned for her work that layers binary code with artisanry; her sculptures, photomontages, videos, and interactive works challenge romanticized notions of ancient traditions and recent inventions.
