Virtual Artist Talk | Billie Zangewa
October 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
Join us for a conversation with artist Billie Zangewa and curator Dexter Wimberly, presented by the Museum of the African Diaspora.
Artist Billie Zangewa and curator Dexter Wimberly will discuss works in Thread for a Web Begun and Zangewa’s career that until recently has developed primarily in Europe and South Africa. Although many of the scenes depicted in Zangewa’s layered silk tapestries are autobiographical, there is a relatability that goes beyond her personal journey as an artist. Zangewa’s labor-intensive processes recall the historic implications of “women’s work” but remain a steadfastly contemporary interpretation of lived experiences.
Registration for this event will open on September 26th.
