Please join Colin Fanning, Curatorial Fellow for European Decorative Arts and Sculpture, for a special tour of the exhibition The Architecture of Francis Kéré: Building for Community, part of the larger Creative Africa suite of exhibitions in the Museum’s Perelman Building. A native of Burkina Faso but trained and practicing in Berlin, Kéré has received growing international attention and acclaim for his community-focused, contextually sensitive work that places people at the center of the architectural process. The exhibition includes both a retrospective of Kéré’s inventive built projects in Burkina Faso and beyond—illustrated through architectural models, material studies, and photographs—as well as an immersive site-specific installation in the Perelman Building’s Skylit Atrium.
