Lineage through landscapeCSULB Painting Professor Fran Siegel has a solo exhibition entitled Lineage through Landscape: Tracing Egun in Brazil by Fran Siegel at the Fowler Museum at UCLA. The exhibition will run from July 23 through December 10, 2017, with an artist reception on August 27th.  As Carolina A. Miranda wrote in the LA Times  “[Lineage] is a large-scale drawing project inspired by a recent residency in Brazil, where she conducted research in, among other places, the Island of Itaparica, an important center of Afro-Brazilian religious practice. [Siegel’s] 40-foot-long piece consists of a weaving that brings together strips of fabric and drawings of sacred plants on translucent film — a record of the landscapes she inhabited, and the troubled histories some of those represent.”
