Fatimah Tuggar: Home’s Horizons
September 22, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm$12
The Davis Museum at Wellesley College presents Fatimah Tuggar: Home’s Horizons, a major solo exhibition that investigates history, technology, and the home. A multimedia artist born in Nigeria in 1967 and currently based in Kansas City, Missouri, Tuggar has taught and exhibited around the world. Curated by Amanda Gilvin, Sonja Novak Koerner Senior Curator and Assistant Director of Curatorial Affairs, the exhibition features works from 1995 to 2019—in sculpture, photo-montage, video, and augmented reality (AR)—and highlights Tuggar’s interrogation of the systems underlying human interactions with both high-tech gadgets and handmade crafts. She seeks to promote social justice by implicating everyone in these systems, while playfully proposing new ways of seeing and making.
The Davis has commissioned the new installation Deep Blue Wells, an interactive multimedia work combining textiles, sculptures, video, and AR.
Please note: Tickets are required for entry to this special exhibition. General admission, $12; Wellesley College alumnae, $6. Free entry for all students with I.D., Wellesley College faculty and staff, Friends of Art members, and Durant Society members.
Exhibit runs Sept. 13-Dec. 15
