It's Never Too Late, But Think What We Missed: Belated Encounters with the Sculptural Life and Work of Senga Nengudi
- Henry Moore Institute
- Wednesday, 30 January 2019
- Lecture by Prof. Griselda Pollock in the Institute's seminar room, starting at 6pm
Prof. Griselda Pollock (Leeds University) discusses the life and work of Senga Nengudi.
Born in Chicago in 1943, Nengudi has been a trailblazer in sculpture for fifty years. A vital figure in the African American avant-garde scenes of Los Angeles and New York in the 1960s and 1970s, her work is characterised by a persistently radical experimentation with material and form.
This lecture is programmed alongside the exhibition Senga Nengui, on display in Galleries 1, 2, 3 and 4, 21 September 2018 - 17 February 2019.
This event is free of charge and open to all, but booking is advised. For more information please contact Kirstie Gregory, our Research Coordinator.
