Belgium-based Congolese artist Aimé Mpane creates sculptures, mosaic-like wall hangings, and portraits carved on wood that explore the fundamental connection between place and personal identity. In this Phillips Collection talk on June 29, 2021 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm, Mpane speaks about his artistic practice, including the two works, Mapasa and Maman Calcule, featured in Seeing Differently: The Phillips Collects for a New Century. Moderated by The Phillips Collection’s senior curator Elsa Smithgall. Make a reservation here.
