Rothschild Lecture: Odili Donald Odita - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

The Barbra and Andrew Rothschild Lecture

Free and open to the public. Lecture hall opens at 6:30 PM, and seating is limited.

 

The Nasher Museum presents Odili Donald Odita, an abstract painter who uses color to mirror the complexity of the world. He explores, in his paintings, a way to address the human condition through pattern, structure and design—and also trigger memory. For the annual Rothschild Lecture he will deliver a talk, entitled “3rd Degree of Separation.”

Nasher-10-logo

 

 

In celebration of Nasher10, the Nasher museum’s first decade the museum plans to commission a mural by Odita in downtown Durham, and also a large-scale wall painting at the museum.

 

“The colors I use are personal: They reflect the collection of visions from my travels locally and globally,” Odita says.

 

Odita’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Savannah College of Art and Design, Georgia; Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; Studio Museum in Harlem; Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; and Princeton University, New Jersey. In 2007, Odita’s large installation Give Me Shelter was featured prominently in the 52nd Venice Biennale.

 

Odita was born in 1966 in Enugu, Nigeria, and lives and works in Philadelphia. He has been the recipient of a Penny McCall Foundation Grant in 1994, a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant in 2001 and a Louis Comfort Tiffany Grant in 2007.
