Fowler Museum at UCLA

Pasadena Art Alliance

The Fowler Museum 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.

Funding will provide exhibition support for Meleko Mokgosi: Bread, Butter, and Power, a new commission (sets of canvasses) that will fill over 100 linear feet of the Fowler’s Lucas Gallery. The overarching theme examines feminism and gender divisions in labor in southern Africa; a secondary current explores the different types of narratives in painting. The exhibition will run from February 11 to June 30, 2018.
