Inspired by an Egun masquerade ensemble in the Fowler’s collection, Los Angeles-based artist Fran Siegel began a multi-year artistic research project that led her to multiple sites in Brazil. In this conversation, Siegel and Fowler Museum Director Marla Berns discuss Siegel’s experiences in Brazil—most specifically on Itaparica Island—and the resulting drawing project featured in the exhibition 'Lineage through Landscape: Tracing Egun in Brazil by Fran Siegel.' Afterwards enjoy light refreshments in the Davis Courtyard and gallery viewing.
— Fowler Museum at UCLA presents 'Lineage through Landscape: Tracing Egun in Brazil,' a large-scale multifaceted drawing installation by Los Angeles-based artist Fran Siegel. The exhibition, which runs July 23 through Dec. 10, considers the potential of Afro-Brazilians to transcend global displacement through ancestral rituals as well as the symbolic systems that keep their connections to Africa alive. It is part of the museum’s three-part exhibition program for Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, exploring Brazil’s African history and cultural heritage.
— Pacific Standard Time is a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Supported by grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA takes place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California, from Los Angeles to Palm Springs, and from San Diego to Santa Barbara. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America.
