Learn from Bruce Onobrakpeya and dele jegede about Bruce Onobrakpeya: The Mask and the Cross and Onobrakpeya’s sixty-year career. “The Mask and the Cross” describes Onobrakpeya’s creative phase from 1967 through 1978, during which he imbued Catholic motifs and stories from the Bible with African meaning and cultural aesthetics. The conversation will expand to include Nigerian art of the 1960s and 1970s more broadly and the early postcolonial contexts in which these works were created. Exhibition curator Lauren Tate Baeza, Fred and Rita Richman Curator of African Art, will share opening remarks.
