This October will see the world premiere of the exhibition El Anatsui: When I Last Wrote to You about Africa, a contemporary African art exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum, in Toronto.

The exhibition is a four-decade retrospective of Ghanaian visual artist El Anatsui and includes more than 60 pieces of Anatsui’s work, including drawings, paintings, wood, ceramics and metal sculptures made from discarded liquor bottle caps, for which he is best known.

Presented by the Institute for Contemporary Culture (ICC), and organized by the Museum of African Art (MfAA) in New York, this retrospective is the centerpiece of the museum’s upcoming Season of Africa, an offering of exhibitions, new permanent installations, and a series of public programmes and events inspired by African art and culture.

The exhibition runs from Oct. 2 to Jan. 2.

Groups of 10 or more are eligible for special rates on private guided tours.
