Art Speaks: Elias Sime
Ethiopian artist Elias Sime creates large-scale, modular artworks from discarded technological materials that explore themes ranging from environmentalism and globalization to the history of modern art. In addition to his studio practice, Sime cofounded and helps run Zoma Museum, an Addis Ababa institution dedicated to community engagement and sustainability that is comprised of a school, farm, library, garden, cafe, and exhibition space. In conversation with curator Hannah Klemm and his longtime collaborator, Meskerem Assegued, Sime will discuss his practice and the work presented in the exhibition Currents 118: Elias Sime.
This virtual program will take place via Zoom and will include opportunities for participants to ask questions in the chat box. Attendees’ mics and cameras will not be activated. Attendees must register on the Museum website to receive the Zoom link.
