Senga Nengudi

Friday 21 September 2018Sunday 10 February 2019

Exhibition of work by sculptor Senga Nengudi (b. Chicago, 1943). 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. Building upon a legacy of abstraction, Nengudi is a leading figure of Postminimalism making sculpture embedded with human, philosophical and spiritual concern. Her assimilation of traditional African forms and Japanese Gutai within Western Modernism has also been especially significant.
