Public Program

Cancelled - Artist Talk: Marcia Kure

Due to rain in the forecast, this outdoor event has been cancelled.
A new date will be announced at a later time.

Artist Marcia Kure will join Assistant Curator Kelly Montana for a conversation in conjunction with the unveiling of her monumental work commissioned by the Menil—the third in an ongoing series of ephemeral wall drawings in the entry space of the Menil Drawing Institute.

Kure will share insight into the process of creating this new work, as well as discuss her multidisciplinary practice more broadly, which explores a wide range of concepts, including colonial legacies and diasporic identities.

About the artist:

Marcia Kure was born in Nigeria and trained under the founding members of the Nsukka School, a group of artists and faculty members associated with the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Her work is held in the collections of the British Museum, London; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, Washington DC; and the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; among others. She lives and works in Princeton, New Jersey and Abuja and Kaduna, Nigeria.
