Weekly Photo Challenge: TWO SUBJECTS (2)

There are two things vital for a museum experience:

The Observer, and the Observed

an art object, and an observer of the art object. Here we have both, at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, MA.

The occasion was a breathtaking show of what I can only call tapestries, made from “reclaimed” rubbish by Ghanaian sculptor El Anatsui. They are extraordinarily beautiful creations that have a political message as well, and you can have a sampling of them here. Well worth the time to see, even in photographs. In person, they were stunning!

    This is a great observation, Judith – and from my point of view it resulted in a very good picture.

    Great subjects… an art object, and an observer of the art object. El Anatsui’s art is still beautiful.

  6. That is a great piece. Thanks for sharing information about it.
