The Fowler Museum at UCLA explores global arts and cultures with an emphasis on works from Africa, Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas—past and present. The Fowler enhances understanding and appreciation of the diverse peoples, cultures, and religions of the world through dynamic exhibitions, publications, and public programs, informed by interdisciplinary approaches and the perspectives of the cultures represented. Also featured is the work of international contemporary artists presented within the complex frameworks of politics, culture and social action.
The grant will lend support for the exhibition “Nkame: A Retrospective of Cuban Printmaker Belkis Ayon.” This show will introduce audiences to the late Cuban contemporary printmaker Belkis Ayon and her distinctive work, which has never been shown as comprehensively in North America. The exhibition is scheduled to run October 2016 through February 2017.
