ATLANTA -- Spelman College Museum of Fine Art in collaboration with NBAF, presenters of the National Black Arts Festival, present "Chakaia Booker in Conversation" on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Museum of Fine Art. Booker is widely acclaimed for her abstract sculptures made of intricately woven, layered, shredded, and curled rubber tires. In this conversation with Andrea Barnwell Brownlee, Ph.D., director of the museum, Booker will discuss topics ranging from black identity to urban ecology.

Booker has long worked with discarded materials, exploring and redefining their meaning and purpose. Her choice of materials, particularly her use of rubber tires, lends deep layers of meaning to her work, infusing the sculptures with social, political and cultural undertones.
