NEW IN THE ART LAB:
OPEN FACE BY TA-COUMBA AIKEN
OPENS SEPTEMBER 2, 2000
With Open Face, Ta-Coumba Aiken explores
themes of identity and self-discovery/rediscovery through rhythm patterns
and spirit writing. He incorporates colorful repetitive imagery and interactive
puzzles with characters drawn from Chinese calligraphy, Ghanian adrinka,
and Minnesota petroglyphs to take visitors on a personal journey and draw
them into a comfortable environment. Open Face will be on view
in the Walker's Art Lab through March 3, 2001.
TA-COUMBA AIKEN'S WALKER ART LAB INSTALLATION IS
MADE POSSIBLE BY GENEROUS SUPPORT FROM TARGET STORES.
