    When I Last Wrote to You about Africa, the Ghanaian artist’s first career retrospective, makes its U.S. debut at the Davis. Widely lauded for magnificent large-scale wall hangings made from thousands of discarded liquor-bottle tops “sewn” together with copper wire, and for installation pieces similarly crafted from refuse, Anatsui draws on traditional idioms and contemporary art practices to create work that resonates materially and symbolically with the cultural and historical conditions of West Africa.
