Artist Talk: Kinji Akagawa and Aaron Spangler
Artists Kinji Akagawa and Aaron Spangler discuss their sculptures in the newly opened Wurtele Upper Garden. Akagawa’s Garden Seating, Reading, Thinking (1987/2017) was commissioned for the 1988 opening of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and has been a favorite spot for visitors to rest, read, and reflect. Spangler’s newly commissioned Bog Walker (2017), the artist’s first permanent outdoor sculpture, is an organic form covered with etchings of hands, tools, toys, and other objects of everyday life. The conversation is moderated by visual arts assistant curator Victoria Sung.
