Fold, Crumple, Crush is a powerful portrait of Africa's most famous contemporary artist,
El Anatsui. Director Susan Vogel (who will lecture at the Art Center on November 24)
presents an insider's view of his practice, the ingenious steps and thousands of hours of
labor that transform recycled bottle tops into huge, opulent wall hangings. Anatsui himself
explains how his artworks have become a new kind of painting and sculpture.
