Njideka Akunyili Crosby

  • Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles (map)

Join art muse Jennifer Li in viewing Njideka Akunyili Crosby's site-specific work at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Crosby is known for her richly colored and intricately layered portraits of the Black diasporic community. Born in Nigeria and now living in Los Angeles, Crosby calls upon her own experience to inform her large-scale multi-media installations. At MOCA, Crosby transforms the museum itself into a canvas for exploring community, intimacy, and home.
