A multileveled sculpture stands on eight sharp, slender stakes. Each of the three levels consists of many thin layers, akin to a geological cross-section.

Join us for an afternoon with Otobong Nkanga as we open the latest ascendant artist exhibition, Otobong Nkanga: To Dig a Hole that Collapses Again. The experience begins with a performance by the artist in the galleries and culminates in a conversation between Nkanga and exhibition curator Omar Kholeif at 3 pm.


This program is made possible by the Kristina Barr Lectures, which were established through a generous gift by The Barr Fund to the Chicago Contemporary Campaign.
