Fowler OutSpoken Talks
Presented in conjunction with the "Nkame" exhibition, these presentations offer an investigation of diverse aspects of Abakuá, the Afro-Cuban fraternal society that inspired Belkis Ayón’s art. UCLA Professor of History and Anthropology Andrew Apter will give a talk titled “Abakuá: Ritual, Memory, and Sacred Geography in Cuba and Southeastern Nigeria”; and independent art historian and curator Judith Bettelheim will speak about “The Public Face of Abakuá and the Work of Belkis Ayón.” The talks are to be followed by a question-and-answer period.
