  • El Anatsui was born in 1944 in Anyako, Ghana and has worked for much of his career in Nigeria. He is known for his large-scale installations made from detritus of urban life, such as liquor bottle caps, condensed milk tins, and scrap wood. These monumental works display the beauty of the objects as well as evoke the history of the origin of these materials. Anat-suis work is based on traditional Ghanaian beliefs and Nigerian symbols while referencing the history of abstraction in African and Western art. His transformation of discarded materials raise pressing issues of global con-sumerism and highlights the blurring of geographic identities. El Anatsuis work has been exhibited around the world, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, National Museum of African Art, Washington, D.C., Venice Biennale, Hayward Gallery, Liverpool Biennial, the National Museum of African Art, the Centre de Cultura Contempornia de Barcelona, the 8th Osaka Sculpture Triennale, and the 5th Gwangju Biennale. Anatsui currently has a public sculpture titled Broken Bridge II installed on the High Line in New York City. Anatsui also has an upcoming show opening at the Brooklyn Museum on February 3, 2013 titled Gravity and Grace: Monu-mental Works by El Anatsui. In November 2012, Anatsui collaborated with Brodsky Center Master Papermaker Anne McKeown on a series of works in handmade paper.

    Alexandre Arrechea was born in Trinidad, Cuba, in 1970. He graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana in 1994. For twelve years he was a member of the art collective Los Carpinteros, until he left the group in July of 2003 to continue his work as a solo artist. His public art displays concepts of power through the networks of hierarchies, surveillance, control, prohibitions, and subjection. Arrecheas work reveals a profound interest in the exploration of both public and domestic spaces. These investigations have led him to produce several monumental projects like Ciudad Transportable (2000), The Garden of Mistrust (2003-2005) and Perpetual Free Entrance (2006). His work has been exhibited around the world at the Havana Biennial; Prospect.1 New Orleans; American Univer-sity Museum at the Katzen, Washington, D.C.; San Deigo Museum of Art; and Museo Patio Herreriano, Valladolid, Spain. Arrechea has an upcoming series of public sculptures to be installed in late February 2013 on Park Av-enue, as part of the Public Art Program of the City of New Yorks Department of Parks & Recreation, and will have work in the upcoming Venice Bienale. He worked with Brodsky Center Master Printer Randy Hemminghaus in the fall and winter of 2012 on a series of editions inspired by the imagery of the Park Avenue sculptures.
