Additional Information

Among the imagery in Fran Siegel’s installation are natural elements such as trees and leaves that have special significance in Candomblé, a religion originating in Salvador, Bahia.

In this gallery talk, Robert Voeks, Cal State Fullerton Professor of Geography, explores the ethnobotany of Brazil’s Candomblé religion, a belief system introduced by African slaves during the colonial era and that continues to employ a large pharmacopoeia of healing plants.

#CultureFix is a short format, informal gallery talk featuring artists, curators and other luminaries.
