Born in Chicago in 1943, Senga Nengudi has developed a singular practice fusing sculpture and performance art, drawing on her long-standing interests in Japanese Gutai art, dance, and West African ritual practices. She spent several decades in Los Angeles from the 1960s until the late ’80s, during which time she collaborated with artists like David Hammons and Barbara McCullough on improvisational performances. This exhibition includes sculptures from various stages of her career as well as photographs documenting historic performances. Find out more from the Lenbachhaus’s website.
