Presented by Chelsea Farrar, Curator of Community Engagement
This talk will examine some of the many works by African American artists from the University of Arizona Museum of Art’s collection post Harlem Renaissance. Following this major event in American art history, several other moments impacted the Black aesthetic in art (which is far from a singular, defined aesthetic!). Learn more about the ways artists like Robert Colescott, Kerry James Marshall, Alison Saar and Rozeal respond to history, forge pathways in a Eurocentric art world, and continue to search and create their own artistic identities and visual language.
