Collectors Forum - Conversation with Odili Donald Odita
Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2020 | 1:00 pm | Via Zoom Webinar
Meet the artist who is being commissioned to create a mural for the Museum’s new Sculpture Garden this spring. Odili Donald Odita is an abstract painter best known for his large-scale canvases with kaleidoscopic patterns and vibrant hues, which he uses to reflect the human condition. Born in Nigeria and raised in the American Midwest, Odita’s work is inspired by a sense of dual identity, combining aspects of Western modernity with African culture. His paintings, like a stitched or quilted textile, are weavings from different spaces, times, and various temperaments, conveying the complexity of culture, identity, and being.
