Artist Skype Talk Series: Fatimah Tuggar
The capstone in a series of three conversations via Skype between Davis curators and artists Haley Morris-Cafiero, Habiba Nowrose, and Fatimah Tuggar.
Multimedia artist Fatimah Tuggar (b. 1967, Kaduna, Nigeria) will discuss her current exhibition, Fatimah Tuggar: Home’s Horizons, with a focus on Deep Blue Wells, a commission by the Davis Museum. The installation engages with the indigo dye wells of Kano, Nigeria, to transform widely held ideas about art, history, and technology.
