Acknowledged worldwide as one of the most remarkable artists working today, El Anatsui’s meticulously constructed assemblages examine the complex histories of post-colonial Africa and the issues of consumption, waste and the environment. Presented by Carriageworks, Sydney Festival and Anna Schwartz Gallery.
