Civil War to Civil Rights: How African American Artists Engage the Past

August 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Through the critical lens of the political, legal, and cultural changes that marked the transition from slavery to the Civil War to the Civil Rights period in the 1960s and 1970s, this presentation will examine depictions of the multifaceted and highly politicized dimensions of race and American identity in the artistic production of African American artists. Artists as such as Elizabeth Catlett, Faith Ringgold, Kara Walker, Fred Wilson, Kehinde Wiley, and Hank Willis, among many others, will be discussed. Evie Terrono guest lecturer from the VMFA will lead this discussion.
