CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS IN CONVERSATION WITH HISTORY: 1968

F ST NW & 8TH ST NW, WASHINGTON, DC 20004
APRIL 4 | 6:30 - 7:45
I am participating on a panel with Sam Gilliam and Alfredo Jaar at the Smithsonian American Art Museum on April 4. The event, Contemporary Artists in Conversation with History: 1968, falls on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. The conversation will be moderated by SAAM Deputy Chief Curator, E. Carmen Ramos.
In addition to discussing Requiem for Charleston, I'll be discussing new work currently in progress: A series of portraits based on mugshots of women who helped lead the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
