Artists in Conversation: Enacting Identities
A program of:
Conceptions of White and THE COUNTER/SELF
Wednesday, March 8, 2023
Online on Zoom
With speakers Jeremy Bailey, Jennifer Chan, 2Fik, and Stacey Tyrell
The two exhibitions currently presented at the Art Museum—Conceptions of White and THE COUNTER/SELF— explore nuanced perspectives on racialized identities. Working from specific cultural positions, each artist explores the nuances of identity formation and perception, trajectories of research, and new outlooks that have resulted from their investigations. This panel discussion invites artists from both projects to share their insights and discuss the articulation of racial constructs through their distinctive artistic approaches. Moderated by Lillian O’Brien Davis and Mona Filip.
This event is free and is open to the public.
