Art Erased. Sigh.

“I was intrigued by the idea that the drawing that I would spend several hours making on a gallery wall would eventually be erased to make space for another artwork. I saw this as a metaphor for life itself. The knowledge that I exist at one moment in time only to exit for something else to fill the space that I once occupied was a very humbling realization.” –Victor Ekpuk (Art of Victor Ekpuk), as published in the 2015 summer Quarterly, from a conversation he had with Smooth Nzewi, Curator of African Art.

Victor’s wall mural was erased today and we are sad to see it go. Visit the Hood’s Instagram account for more images from today and other behind-the-scenes photos. ‪#‎hoodmuseum‬ ‪#‎victorekpuk‬ ‪#‎autographics‬ ‪#‎dartmouth‬‪#‎walldrawing‬ ‪#‎process‬
