Exhibition showcases the mesmerising monumental work of acclaimed artist El Anatsui

It glistens, gold, silver and black, subtle sensual folds, a monumental shimmering tapestry that transforms the most banal of throwaway items into a pointer to Africa’s history. Adinkra Sasa is part of El Anatsui: Five Decades currently on display at the Carriageworks, Sydney as part of Sydney Festival.   It is the first major Australian exhibition by the Ghanaian artist who is one of the world’s leading contemporary artists and won the prestigious Gold Lion award at the 2015 Venice Biennale.
