  Art & the Afterlife: Fantasy Coffins by Eric Adjetey Anang
   
Saturday, September 16, 2017; 12:00 PM
University of Iowa Museum of Art

For the first time in over twenty years, UIMA will present a solo exhibition of work by a contemporary African artist. Through an installation of six representational “fantasy coffins” by the Ghanaian artist Eric Adjetey Anang, as well as video-recorded interviews with Anang and other coffin-makers from Ghana, and gallery labels providing further context, Art & the Afterlife explores one of the most celebrated (and debated) forms of African art today. As the exhibition demonstrates, the “afterlife” of Anang’s work today refers at once to a funerary tradition among Ga peoples of southern Ghana and to an artistic practice that reconfigures the scope and meaning of mortality and cultural identity.

This exhibition is curated by Cory Gundlach, UIMA Curator of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.

Support for Art & the Afterlife: Fantasy Coffins by Eric Adjetey Anang is provided by the Members Special Exhibition Fund.
