In this 28-minute episode of Artblog Radio, Wit talks with painter and sculptor Darrell Ann Gane-McCalla. Darrell Ann speaks about how the Ghanaian adinkra symbol Sankofa plays a role in her art practice and why the symbol’s definition of “go back and fetch it” is embedded within her work. She shares why she no longer considers herself a muralist and opposes what she labels “gentrified graffiti.”
